See the Toronto Zoo’s new baby gorilla


Gorillas are huge primates, which somehow makes the baby versions even cuter than other newborn animals. Case in point is this tiny gorilla, born at the Toronto Zoo on January 9. As of Friday, zoo staff had been unable to determine its sex (apparently its mother, a zoo gorilla named Ngozi, has been keeping a tight hold on her tot). The as-yet-unnamed tiny gorilla joins this tiny polar bear on the zoo’s most-adorable list. That strange sensation you feel is your heart beating for the first time since the temperature dropped below zero.

Here’s another picture of gorilla junior:
