Ready for her close-up: A female baby gorilla reaches out of her coverings at the Gladys Porter Zoo in Brownsville, Texas, on Friday. The gorilla, born at the South Texas zoo last month, is headed to Ohio to be introduced to a troop at a zoo there because the baby’s mother has been ignoring her. Zoo officials have been caring for the yet-unnamed western lowland gorilla, born Jan. 29. She will be moved this week to the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden, where experts hope she will bond with two adult female gorillas kept there.
