We went to visit him and the other gorillas at Bristol Zoo today because there is an irresistable attraction. A baby! Here he is with Mama Salome, who has lived at the zoo for a while. She looks very calm about everything, but of course the star of the show is the little’un.
His name is Kukeña, which means ‘to love’. He’s unutterably gorgeous and as you can see, has a habit of sticking his bum in the air. I’m smitten.
This could even make up for the decided absence of a puppy!
