Upala the Baby Gorilla at the Wilhelma Zoo

These adorable photos and related information come to us from photographer Volker Wurst.


Upala is none too pleased about this weekend coming to an end...


"Upala is a little Gorilla boy who was born at the Heidelberg Zoo about half a year ago. Unfortunately, his mother didn't care enough for him and didn't protect him from attacks from his half-brother. Therefore, the zoo team at Heidelberg decided to give Upala to the Wilhelma zoo, as they are very experienced here in helping young apes (Upala is the 57th gorilla baby who is raised in the Wilhelma Kindergarten). He arrived at the Wilhelma on Nov, 18th."
