Animal Babies: First Year on Earth

Baby Nyakabara

Clip: Episode 1 | 2m 51s | Video has closed captioning.

In Uganda, a tiny miracle is hidden in the last fragment of a once-giant forest kingdom, called Bwindi, the impenetrable forest: a baby mountain gorilla, Nyakabara. Her name means "marked," because she was born with a white bracelet of fur, never seen before. Nyakabara is one of perhaps only 50 mountain gorilla babies in the world, and at eight weeks old she weighs only five pounds.
