Milwaukee County Zoo's Baby Gorilla Turns One

The Milwaukee County Zoo's baby gorilla turned one year old on Tuesday!

Sulaiman is turned one year old today. He was born at the zoo to mother Shalia and father, Cassius.

Zookeepers said he's in great health. He's recently become more adventurous spending a little less time to clinging to mom and more time exploring.

"It's interesting because the keepers say he thinks he's a tough guy right now but he only weights between ten and fifteen pounds so he's still pretty little they actually grow at a similar rate to human beings so at one year old he's like a one year old toddler basically," said Milwaukee County Zoo spokesperson.

To mark his first birthday, Sulaiman was given gelatin blocks and some seeds and peanuts scattered about his habitat.
