TAMPA, FL - Park officials at Busch Gardens in Tampa welcomed a new addition Monday; the first gorilla in the park's history was born.

The little bundle's 33-year-old mom, Kishina, experienced medical problems while giving birh to the baby gorilla Friday. So the baby was delivered by caesarean section.

The father is 9-year-old Cenzoo, a western lowland gorilla.

Busch Gardens is now home to seven gorillas.

He's adorable! Of course, I love gorillas. I could sit for hours and just watch them.

I thought the same thing. Too bad he has to grow up to be a gorilla - LOL.

The ones that are really cute are orangutangs. I was taking pics of a young orangutang at a zoo once and the orangutang then imitated me holding and clicking my camera.

Apes have always been the most fun animals to watch at zoos. Perhaps they seem so human in many of their facial expressions.

The SF Zoo had one that was a hoot. He would play hide and seek with you. He would put a food bucket on his head and spy on you through a hole. If you said "peek a boo" and put your hands over your eyes he would play with you.

LOL! Those were my thoughts!

I told my daughter and son that a 33 year old gave birth to a baby and the daddy was nine. They were horrified! They wanted that woman in prison. I assured them the mom was behind bars for the rest of her life.
