In case you missed it, Wilder Institute / Calgary Zoo’s littlest troop member has a name. Her name is ‘Eyare” which means ‘treasure, gift, pride’.
At nearly two months old, zoo staff couldn’t be happier with Eyare's continued growth and development. In addition to her two upper incisors, she has sprouted two lower incisors! She’s also starting to pick things up and grasp other items (besides her mom, ‘Dossi’s hair!).
Dossi is starting to interact with Eyare in new and playful ways – like placing her in a sitting position or laying on her back while she holds Eyare in the air atop her feet.
Be sure you’re following #YYCGorillaBaby as we continue to share her milestone moments along the way.
