adelina gorilla

Listen, I’m pretty sure I’m the worst of all when it comes to feeling jealousy and hurt when others announce their pregnancies and new babies.

Having said that: somehow, these pictures of infant gorilla Adelina totally don’t bother me one bit.

Maybe it’s that her whole species is endangered. Or maybe it’s that I know her mama did IVF, too. (Or maybe just IUI. Not sure what zoo protocol is for that.) But regardless, these pictures make me terrifically happy.
