Lowland Gorilla by Smithsonian’s National Zoo
Nope, it’s actually a baby Lowland Gorilla. The National Zoo’s newest addition to the Great Ape House, Kibibi, turned 6 months old today. Awwwww. She sure is a cute little primate isn’t she? Apparently she behaves much like human babies do, crawling around her environment, putting everything she finds in her mouth. According to the photo’s description:
“Kibibi’s favorite thing is exploring new flavors. In one week, she used her new teeth to try celery, ape chow, papaya, and chard, as well as less-palatable morsels like hay and bamboo.”
Ape chow, huh? How do you like them bananas?
