A baby gorilla was finally born at the Washington Zoo after nine years and the organization decided to record the emotional moment.
Calaya, the mother, gave birth to the little gorilla and received him in her arms in a lovely way. This gorilla is at the Smithsonian National Zoo to preserve the species since in recent years it has decreased by 60 percent due to disease and poaching.
