What an adorable new baby

What an adorable new baby

By John Mercure. CREATED Mar 27, 2014

Look at this incredibly cute little guy. Kassiu is the new baby western lowland gorilla at the Milwaukee County Zoo. Kassiu was born March 19th and is now on display for the first time.

Western lowland gorillas are critically endangered in the wild, Kassiu will be here in Milwaukee for at least the next ten or 12 years as he matures. Then experts will decide if he stays or goes on somewhere where he can mate.

Jennifer Diliberti with the Milwaukee County Zoo joined us to talk about the birth.
