Baby gorilla arrives in style

A visitor at Sydney's Taronga Zoo noticed the blood on gorilla Frala's brown coat. Within an hour, a small army of vets and keepers had descended on the gorilla enclosure to discover that Frala had given birth to a baby gorilla boy. Frala's new son, who joins his four-year-old brother Fataki at the zoo, will feed on breast milk alone for around eight months before being introduced to vegetarian solids the rest of his family enjoys.

Is it just me or are baby gorillas the cutest things ever. I love their pictures.
