Como Zoo Welcomes Baby Western Lowland Gorilla

The tiny gorilla yet unnamed is just the third baby born in the 56 years Como Zoo has been caring for gorillas

Her first little one was just days old when it died.

The baby, her mother and the baby's father, a 31-year-old silverback western lowland gorilla named Schroeder, will be off exhibit for a couple of months or so to let the family bond.

Here are some traits that should sound familiar to the human condition: Newborns are almost helpless except to cling to their mother's hair and to nurse.

"With this birth, everything is tracking as it should", Dee added.

You won't be able to see the baby at the zoo just yet - Alice and her troop are now behind the scenes as she takes time to bond with her baby.

Man arrested, charged with terrorism in connection with Virginia parking lot explosion
Williamsburg Police Major Greg Riley said the device went off in a highly trafficked area during peak time but no one was injured. He was charged with two felonies, possessing and using an explosive device and committing an act of terrorism.

Alice gave birth to the 4-pound female on Wednesday, and the newborn "appears healthy, strong and is bonding" with her mother, the zoo said in Monday's baby announcement. His troop consists of females Nne, Alice and Dara, Dara and Schroeder's baby Arlene, born in 2014, and Alice's yet-unnamed baby.

Alice and Dara both came to Como Zoo as part of the AZA Gorilla Species Survival Plan (SSP). The Gorilla SSP serves 52 zoos across the United States to help guide the management of the gorilla population. The 31-year-old silverback western lowland gorilla has been at Como Zoo since 1991. A gorilla mother will carry the baby on her chest for the first three months. Then, the baby will ride the mother's back.

"Gorillas are very family oriented", said Jo Kelly, Senior Zookeeper.

Dad and other members of the troop will be allowed near the baby once it moves around on its own.

Don't go to the zoo expecting to see the baby anytime soon-the zoo says the baby, Alice Schroeder and the rest of Schroeder's troop are now off-exhibit to allow Alice and her baby time to bond.
