Playful Baby Gorilla Tries Out Swing at Zoo Atlanta

Video captures an adorable baby gorilla at Zoo Atlanta exploring a swing during enrichment time with a little help from his mother.

Zoo Atlanta said this was the first time Willie B III got to experience a swing, thanks to his mom, Shalia, who helped him past his “very unsure response at first.”

The young western lowland gorilla was born in April 2023 and is named after his father and grandfather.
