CINCINNATI (AP) -- An abandoned baby gorilla from Texas has made its debut at the Cincinnati Zoo with some of the people who have served as its primary caregivers.
The 3-month-old lowland gorilla is named Gladys Stones. She made her media debut Tuesday in a yard where she'll spend time over the next month with her human caregivers, climbing trees and getting familiar with being outdoors.
Gladys was born Jan. 29 at the Gladys Porter Zoo in Brownsville, Texas. Her mother rejected her, and she was moved to Cincinnati in February to be paired with a gorilla surrogate mother.
A Cincinnati Zoo spokeswoman says about 10 people have been caring for Gladys until one of four gorillas at the zoo is selected to be her surrogate mother and they can be introduced gradually.
