The Kid Should See This

Baby Gorilla Gladys at the Cincinnati Zoo

Just a few months old, Baby Gladys is an adorable little gorilla that is currently being raised by a team of 10 human surrogates at the Cincinnati Zoo. She and the potential surrogate gorilla mothers at the zoo are learning about each other with the help of their human team. The goal is for one of the gorilla moms to take over Gladys’ care within the next few weeks.
