Large gorilla troop
Nukta, a male, is nine months old. The twins N’Hasa (male) and N’Kato (female) are now seven months old. And then there is a three month old male baby and, since the end of November, another baby. Makoua’s baby, the three-month-old, will be receiving a nice African name. The youngest gorilla was first-born to a fairly young mother, N’Aika. Because things can go wrong when a gorilla mother lacks experience, the keepers have kept an eye on the little one and have provided as much rest as the mother and her baby need. Fortunately, N’Aika seems to be doing right by her baby, nursing it at regular intervals and mothering well.
