But he had an angel on his side: Bawang, a loving, maternal gorilla in the zoo, swooped right in as his surrogate mom! “Bawang is a confident mother”, observes the zoo’s Corinee MacDonald. “She allows him the freedom to explore, but keeps a watchful eye on him as well.” And when it came to naming the newborn, zookeepers left the choice up to his daddy: when offered five different-colored cantaloupe shells, each one containing a different name, Dad chose the green one, which contained “Hasani” – which, fittingly means “handsome!” See videos and photos of Hasani by clicking above link, enjoy!
