Rejected baby gorilla: monkey gets a replacement mom


At the Cincinnati Zoo in Ohio, a gorilla mother gave birth to her baby. The five-year-old and extremely cute Fratz is now being raised by nurse Ron Evans.

Unfortunately, in the animal kingdom, as with humans, it happens that mothers do not want to take care of their newborn children. The gorilla mom "Kiazi" from the zoo in Cincinnati is such a case. However, the gorilla baby called "Gladys Stones" is so cute that you can not understand the mother's decision. Now a zoo keeper jumps into the breach and pulls up the little gorilla girl.

"Surrogate mother": Carer Ron Evans raises gorilla baby

Human surrogate mother and zookeeper Ron Evans lovingly gives the gorilla baby the bottle, plays and cuddles with the monkey. In addition, the keeper disguises himself as a gorilla, lets the little one climb on his back and then explore the enclosure together - just like with the real mom. If the animal is large and strong enough to assert itself, it should come into an enclosure with two other female gorillas.
