It's sort of easy to forget how nice it is to have a great, free, and easily accessible zoo right here in DC. But it's always fun to go every once in a while, especially when there's a big event like a baby being born!
On April 15th, a baby gorilla named Moke was born, and I was very surprised but happy to see that the baby wouldn't be held in a separate room for observation. My friends and I did not see Baby Moke or the mom Calaya on our first walk through the Ape House, but we got lucky when we came back after seeing some other animals! It was totally worth the weekend morning trip to see the tiny little baby gorilla being cared for by his mom. I would highly recommend coming by for a chance to see Baby Moke soon :o)
