Baby gorilla, toddler share touching moment during zoo visit

FORT WORTH, TX (WCMH) — A cute picture from the Fort Worth Zoo shows a touching moment between a young gorilla and a little girl.

Gus, is a 5-month-old western lowland gorilla, who, according to the zoo, is exploring more and more of the world around him.

On Tuesday, while Gus was exploring he shared a friendly moment with 2-year-old Braylee.

In the picture shared by the zoo, Gus and Braylee are pressing their palms together on either side of the glass enclosure.

The Fort Worth Zoo hopes the picture will encourage other visitors to share their own encounters with animals.
