It’s hard to believe that this pulverising singularity of cuteness will one day grow into a three-quarter tonne behemoth who wouldn’t even think twice about pulling your spinal cord out through your eye.
We are delighted to announce that we have counted the votes and the baby gorilla will now be called Baako, which means ‘first born child’!

Belfast Zoo are celebrating the arrival of the first Western lowland gorilla to be born at the zoo in 16 years.
The little one needs a name and you can help by voting on the zoo’s Facebook page.
Your choice is from the following:
Baako (which means ‘first born child’)
Kwame (which means ‘Saturday’s child’)
Goliath (gorillas are the largest primate)
Babatunde (which means ‘return of the father’)
Are Belfast Zoo trying to tell us something?
Nothing to see here.
