4-day old baby gorilla makes public debut in mother's arms at San Diego Zoo

December 30, 2014 - 9:10 PM

SAN DIEGO - The public is getting its first glimpse of a four-day-old baby gorilla at the San Diego Zoo.

The still-unnamed male was born Dec. 26 to mother Jessica and father Paul Donn.

Visitors to the zoo on Tuesday were able to see the newborn when Jessica brought him to a glass-enclosed viewing area. Zookeepers say she has been cradling and nursing the baby, who weighs just a few pounds.

She also carries the little one around as she forages for food.

Jessica has five other offspring, but this is her first with Paul Donn, who is a now four-time father.
