SAN DIEGO -- A baby gorilla has been born at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park.
The zoo announced Thursday that Kokomo, an endangered western lowland gorilla, gave birth to a daughter about two days ago.
The baby weighs about 4 pounds and Kokomo tops the scales at 229 pounds.
The zoo says Kokomo is a very protective and attentive mother who won’t let the newborn out of her arms.
However, she is allowing other gorillas to check out her daughter - who doesn’t yet have a name.
It’s the second baby for Kokomo and the father, named Winston.
The baby is the eighth member of the zoo’s gorilla troop.
