The Toledo Zoo has welcomed a new member to its family.

Mokonzi, a Western lowland gorilla, was born late Thursday night at the zoo.

The male baby gorilla, whose name means governor in Swahili, is baby number three for mother, Kitani, and baby number five for father, Kwisha.

Zoo leaders report that Mokonzi is healthy and bonding well with his parents.

The new family will be in the Kingdom of the Apes exhibit starting Thursday, November 29.
