Gorilla Triska welcomed a baby on January 11! Zoo keepers at the Bronx Zoo aren't sure what sex the baby is, since Triska has been very protective of the baby. Since there were already 25 gorillas at the zoo, maybe that's why it wasn't as huge a deal, but baby animals rule. What's cute about the Bronx Zoo is that they seem to be trying to attract spillover King Kong fans. You can see primate training, but that's with monkeys, not gorillas.
Because we're dorks, we like the monkey jokes on Yahooligans. And check out the sand cats the zoo - they are so cute AND their "ears can swivel to funnel sounds into their inner ears." Ooh.
