(KNBC/NBC) - The San Diego Zoo Safari Park has a new member to show-off to visitors -- an adorable baby gorilla!

The 2-day-old baby is being cared for by her mother, whom staff members say is very protective and attentive.

The adorable little bundle of joy was shown off to park guests on Thursday by her mother, Kokomo, who constantly held the baby.


According to zoo officials, workers at the park have not had contact with the baby yet.  However, both are doing well.

The baby weighs around 4 pounds but has not yet been named.

She is the second baby gorilla born to mother Kokomo and father Winston at the zoo.

Kokomo is a six-time mom, having given birth to twins at the Oklahoma City Zoo in 1999.
