Koola, an 18-year-old western lowland gorilla, holds her newborn daughter at the Brookfield Zoo's Tropic World exhibit in Brookfield, Illinois on November 6, 2013. The infant was born on November 4 at the Chicago area zoo. The exact number of the critically endangered western lowland gorillas is not known because they inhabit some of the most dense and remote rainforests in Africa. UPI/Brian Kersey
