Shinda is a female gorilla. She is 24 years old, and she lives at the Prague Zoo. In April, she surprised everyone. She had a baby.

People were upset with the zookeepers. They said, “Didn’t you see her big tummy?”

The zookeepers said, “We thought she was too old and eating too much.”

But, of course, Shinda was pregnant. After the baby came, zookeepers gave her a dish of fruit and vegetables. She was happy with the food and proud of her baby.

This is Shinda’s first baby, and zookeepers say, “…she behaved like an experienced mother.”
