Baby western lowland gorilla

Hasani, a 6-month-old western lowland gorilla, sits in the grass at a gorilla exhibit during his first public viewing at California's San Francisco Zoo, June 5, 2009.

Since his mother rejected him at birth, zoo staff members have raised him. A surrogate gorilla mother was trained to care for Hasani and has accepted the newborn as her own.
