Baby gorilla gets her Simba moment as proud mom lifts her in the air to show her off at Calgary Zoo: At the Calgary Zoo, visitors were treated to a touching sight when they saw a mother gorilla presenting her newborn infant to the public.
The video was uploaded on the internet by ViralHog on Thursday and shows the mother holding her infant gorilla’s arms and hoisting it into the air. She then cradles it in her arms and kisses the young gorilla on the forehead, a touching moment that melted the hearts of those who were present.
In the video, you can pick out the sound of someone exclaiming, “Oh my gosh!” “Did she just give it a little peck on the cheek?” After that, a different woman addresses the gorillas, saying, “Thank you for showing us!”

Since it was posted on Friday, the video on Instagram has received more than 16,000 likes and 233 comments.
“Oh my gosh, I adore this so very much! One of the users of Instagram left a comment saying, “Thank you for making my day better.”
“Momma adores her sweet little child!
Another individual commented on how adorable and heartwarming it was to see it.
Someone another made a joke about how it made them think of nurses working in hospitals with newborn babies.
However, there were some people who advocated for the animals to be set free, while others appeared to be irritated by the comments made by the women in the video.
An Instagram user stated: “It is astonishing that some women are startled that a mother of any species other than the human cares for and survives their baby.” She continued by saying, “Of course they do.”
Another person added, “Sad… these creatures should be free!!!,” while another person said, “They don’t belong there.”
There are six adult gorillas living at the Calgary Zoo, and in April, one of them welcomed a baby gorilla into the world.
In light of the fact that gorillas are a species that is on the verge of extinction, the birth of the zoo’s newest gorilla is an especially cause for celebration.
Over the past three decades, the number of wild gorillas has dropped by approximately 80 percent, as reported by the Calgary Zoo. According to the zoo, this is because of poaching and the degradation of habitats, primarily caused by the mineral coltan, which is used for the production of cell phones.
Another touching video of a gorilla was taken in the month of March in Dallas, Texas. This time, a zookeeper who was on maternity leave was able to introduce her newborn daughter to one of the gorillas that she was responsible for caring for.
Olivia, Mary Kate Findley’s two-month-old daughter, was taken to the gorilla complex so that her mother, Mary Kate Findley, may brag about her to Juba, who is 20 years old. The video clip, which has been distributed on TikTok, has received more than 30 million views as of this writing.
