Zoo names baby gorilla

Cincinnati Zoo

The Cincinnati Zoo has named its newest arrival.  This is from the Zoo's announcement today:

The Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden is excited to announce that its 4 –week-old, female, baby gorilla officially has a name – “Gladys Stones!”  The Zoo’s Primate Keepers thought this was the perfect way to honor the Gladys Porter Zoo (GPZ), in Brownsville, Texas, where the baby was born.  And, the Zoo’s Facebook page agreed with dozens of names suggesting Gladys.  Zoo Keepers also decided to give Gladys the last name “Stones” to recognize the Stones Family who cared for her in her first few weeks before she came to Cincinnati.
