Zoo Babies

Zoos and babies went together very nicely in January, 2008. No teasing, no killing.

Mother Zazie cradles her new born baby boy at the Hanover Zoo in Germany.

The little gorilla was born Friday, Jan. 11, 2008. He is the 5th child of Buzandi, a male gorilla.

Tamo lives at the Wuppertal Zoo. The little elephant is one month old having come into this world Dec 13, 2007.

Lion cubs, Aketi and Aru, make their public debut at the Wuppertal Zoo on Tuesday, Jan 8, 2008. The mother, Malaika gave birth to the cubs on Oct 4, 2007.

The mother of this 2 kg fur ball was thought to be a danger to the cub and the two were separated. The unnamed cub is being bottled fed every three hours at the Nuremberg Zoo, Germany. After a high fat milk meal, nothing is better than a nap.

A two month old orangutan is the very model of innocence. The mother, A-me, cuddles her babe in the Guadalajara Zoo, Mexico on Jan. 11, 2008.

Raz is only the second of his species to be born in Britain. The Aye Aye is a rare species of Lemur from Madagascar where it is thought to be an omen of bad luck. The tiny animal has been hunted to near extinction. Raz was born and currently resides at the Bristol Zoo Gardens, England.

The infant Homo Sapien, Daniel Jimenez, gets up close and personal with a lowland gorilla at the Fort Worth Zoo in Texas, Saturday, Jan. 2008.
