Dr Craig Helps OKC Zoo's Gorilla Conceive

(Excerpted from the Edmond Sun) -  Visitors at the Oklahoma City Zoo watch as a western lowland gorilla named Kelele cuddles, licks and naps with her son. Leom is just a few weeks old, born on Feb. 14. His bright eyes are busy absorbing the world around his mother’s protective care.
