Cute Overload :D
Kokamo, a gorilla at San Diego Zoo Safari Park, gave birth to a baby named Monroe this past June:
Sender-Inner George M. took these gorgeous photos when Monroe was just over a month old. Hoverfacts via TheWorldWeShare.
He’s got lil gorilette cowlicks.
Celery and behbeh equally nommable. http://www.cutethingsinpaint.com/2011/09/lunch-decisions.html
Football Carry! You go, Kokamo. Sooo precious!
almost makes me want to have one of my own!
Your own gorilla???? Let us know how that goes, OK? :)
Sweet li’l dude has one kickass mom…
And their ears! Just like ours, how wild does that look, especially on mom?
Great moments in American history: first public viewing of the Monroe ‘Tockrine.
Such clever wit! It just takes my breath away. *shuffles away humbly*
Let me be the first to applaud you. Bleen, bleen!
Baby gorillas would be a lot cuter if they didn’t look so much like baby humans..
I love it that they have “thumbs” on their feet… think of the possibilities!
….”Folding laundry while frosting cupcakes!”
SOUNDS great in theory.
However, Chez Moi, if’n thar wuz cupcakes ‘n frostin’ about, wulnn’t be no foldin’ of no DANG laundry, nosireeBOB!!!! :)
Lately, I’ve been of the opinion that frosting don’t need no cupcakes! (But I’ll take the cupcakes anyway!) :P
Oooh, YES, thumbs on feet *thinking of possibilities*…alas, none come quickly to mind…
If I had thumbs on my feet my boss would give me:
Two PC’s with 2 key boards and 2 mice and then cut my pay in half because the company doesn’t have to pay minimum wage to adults with severe physical and mental disabilities.
Looks like someone read Happiest Baby on the Block!! :-)
The way she’s holding that celery, you’d think that she’s preparing to spank the kid with it.
“Now son, this is a celery. Son, look at me when I’m talking to you!”
LOL, I thought it looked like she was contemplating whether to feed it to the baby.
I think it looks like the celery is actually a baby bottle.
Mom still had time to get a nice red henna treatment! Moms need to be pampered too!
That made me laugh. :-)
I love Monroe’s feet and I love how Kokamo is holding him!! I also love that the silverback is being so diligent in protecting both of them from the other gorillas.
Lookit da kyoot widdle bebeh!! *blink* ack sorry, forgot myself for a minute. But he’s very sweet!! Good job, Kokamo!! (p.s., the celery goes in the other end. When he’s a bit older. FYI.)
Unless he gets into some “monkey business” and then the celery is for whacking that end.
1st picture looks like Monroe doesn’t want to go to the first day of Kindergarten.
2nd picture looks like Mom is about to stick the celery someplace if Monroe doesn’t get on the bus. Hopefully Mom understands the concept of square pegs and round holes. 8O
Either Mom reeeeeeeally likes holding bebbehs back-ass-wards, or the Bebbeh squirms his way into that posishe. Either way, consistency reigns supreme here ….
Nursing for 3 years?!? 8O I have a major newfound respect for the patience of mommy gorillas…
My sister would kill me if she knew I’d posted this, but…She nursed her first child for 3 1/2 years, then had 6 mos. off before nursing her second kid for 3yrs. Then about 9 mos. later she had the last kid and nursed her for 3 years! (Yes, they were also eating solid food, too.) She was basically a drinking fountain for TEN YEARS!!!! *shakes head in amazement*
I’m in the moderation lounge–what tripped me up? “Nursing”??? I could really use a Dr. Pepper. *sigh*
*heavy sigh* I should be branded “idiot” on my forehead for trying to post anonymously WITH MY AVATAR STILL ATTACHED!! *ducks under blanket to await sister’s wrath*
No kidding! Particularly considering those teeth!!! 8-O
I used to hold my kids like footballs too.
Apes are more like us than we think.
For a few seconds, my maternal instincts shortcircuited my entire brain and my mind went completely blank.
Nawwwwww…. My hubby carries our newborn like this! And our older son when he was born too. Dawwww.
The tiniest hint of baby gorilla tongue! *sigh*
LOL, her look at the celery = “Well, what the heck did you want me to do with this??”
My usual reaction to celery.
I love eating raw celery but its not really a thing in France. Last time I bought it, the girl sweetly asked me what I used that for. she was baffled when I said i would eat it, and even more when I asked her to take the giant leafery out. she thought they were the edible part. anyway, nothing to do with gorillas.
Note the jazz feet in the last pic.
They named him Munroe?? oooohhh *thud*
and yes, the football carry, holy mom thing!
