Just like humans, animals also know how to tend to their young ones. The same can be said of a mother Gorilla who cuddled its newborn hours after it was born.

According to Good News Network, the infant was given birth to at Bristol Zoo Gardens in England, a good development to the endangered species.

Known as Momma Kala, the birth of its baby was said to have happened overnight as the daddy called Jock and other family members were some meters away.

The birth is an addition to the already six gorillas at the England zoo which are part of a breeding arrangement to ensure the future of the animals.

It should be noted that nine-year-old Momma Kala came in from Germany in 2018.

An official at the Bristol Zoo, Lynsey Bugg, said the baby was born in the early hours of Thursday, August 20.

“We are all thrilled. There is something very special about seeing a new-born baby gorilla, they are such an iconic and charismatic species.

“[Kala] is being very attentive and taking good care of her baby. It’s very early days but we are cautiously optimistic. The early signs are good and the baby looks to be a good size and is strong,” she said.

Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh also reported that some beautiful Ghanaian policewomen have joined the Putuu challenge as a video of them dancing to the song has hit social media.

In the footage sighted by YEN.com.gh on the verified Twitter handle of the dancehall artiste himself, the four ladies were seen in a room that appears to be at their station.

It is not stated, for how long the ladies have rehearsed the dance, but the manner in which their moves were so coordinated shows they practised for a while.
