Historical Newborn Gorilla and Mother Bond Right After Birth

On April 17, 2018, cameras at the Smithsonian Zoo captured a very rare moment. The moment a mother gorilla welcomed into the world a baby boy gorilla. Why is such a big deal? Well, Moke (meaning "junior" or "little one" in the Lingala language) is the first Western Lowland gorilla born in just under a decade. Proud mother Calaya was captured bonding with him moments after his birth, and we are all in love!

Super Photogenic Gorilla Resembles George Clooney and is Taking The Internet By Storm

Gorillas aren't really known to be super photogenic. But alas... the really are! Well, at least this one. And after seeing the photos we totally understand the Clooney resemblance! Habani the gorilla or as the Japanese call him ikemen, meaning 'handsome guy' lives at the Higashiyama Zoo in Nagoya, Japan and is pretty much breaking hearts! The Dutch-born, Australian-bred spends his days flexing, posing and being the center of everyones social media posts. Just take a look for yourself!

The zoo knows the public can't be trusted, so in order to avoid "Gorilla McGorillaFace", the staff will be releasing a list of names for people to vote on. Do you think Harambe Jr. will be on there or nah?
