Gorilla Baby Gladys bonding with surrogate mother at Cincinnatti Zoo

July 1, 2013 (CINCINNATI)

She is now bonding with her new surrogate mother at the Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden.

Baby Gladys is five months old and has gotten cozy with her new gorilla surrogate.

Earlier, ten human surrogates prepared Gladys to be united with a new gorilla mom by wearing faux fur, feeding, grooming and carrying Gladys, all in the ways of the gorilla.

When she met her new mom, Gladys was a little tentative, but as she inched closer, her mom was quick to pick her up.
