A year after losing her first-born baby, a nine-year-old gorilla identified as Kala is bonding with her new baby almost a month after giving birth again.
Some pictures posted by Daily Mail showed that animals also care for their offspring just the way humans care for theirs.
Kala, who is one of the seven western lowland gorillas in Bristol Zoo, gave birth to her new baby on August 19, Daily Mail reports.
Briefly.co.za notes that a zoo photographer captured the beautiful bond between the mother and her baby when the latter was less than two weeks old.
Kala was said to have given birth naturally this time around unlike the first birth which was through emergency caesarean section.
Curator of Mammals at Bristol Zoo, Lynsey Bugg, said everyone at the zoo is happy about the newborn.
She said there is something very special about seeing a newborn baby gorilla, adding that they are such an iconic and charismatic species.

In other news, a video of a group of baby pigs trying to save a fish has gone viral on social media and has got people talking about how compassionate animals could be.
There is no doubt that animals are compassionate and they go out of their way to help one another, the viral video has further proven it.
In the video, the baby pigs found a fish lying lifeless on the floor and they used their snouts to push it into a nearby river.
The baby pigs were aware of the fact that fish were created to survive in water and not on land, and when they found it on the latter, they wasted no time to push it back to where it belonged.
Unfortunately, the fish did not survive. It must have been on land for a while before the baby pigs tried to rescue it.
