The reason for all the fuss is because this birth is a true miracle. Gorilla gorilla , commonly known as the western lowland gorilla, is critically endangered . The main causes are poaching, habitat loss and health problems.

Furthermore, the young gorilla had had a lot of difficulty conceiving. That’s why when she finally had her son in her arms, she couldn’t stop showing her affection.

The beautiful event took place at the Smithsonian National Zoo , Washington DC, United States. After more than 9 years of not having a baby gorilla in the enclosure, they finally welcomed Moke. It was all thanks to the efforts of biologists, veterinarians and caregivers, who did everything possible for Calaya to get pregnant.

Of course they also took great care of her throughout her pregnancy so that the little gorilla was born healthy and the species could be preserved. And apparently, Moke’s parents knew about these difficulties because when they saw her baby, they hugged and kissed him.

Fortunately, this moment was captured on video and shared on YouTube by the same zoo. It is worth mentioning that birth images may not be suitable for the most sensitive. However, what happened next is totally touching because the gorilla did not wait to give her newborn a kiss.

Thus, 15-year-old Calaya immediately showed that she will be a very loving mother. But she also gave us humans a great lesson since she proved that she is not without feelings because she is an animal. On the contrary, she has the ability to feel maternal love and even affection for beings of other species, such as humans.

Now, Moke, whose name means “little” in the Lingala language, will be very happy with his parents, who will undoubtedly take care of him like the treasure that he is.
