All Eyes Are on Newborn Gorilla at Lincoln Park Zoo.

On October 11, a healthy baby Western Lowland Gorilla was born at the Lincoln Park Zoo -- an important addition to this critically endangered species.

The baby has yet to be sexed or named and appears to be doing well. Mother Bana, 17, is showing appropriate maternal instincts, while dad Kwan, a 23-year-old silverback, is watchful over the mom and baby pair.
