This one was of the most heart-breaking animal photo I saw last year. I was happy to see the image today of her with her new baby. Doesn't it look like she's kissing her?
Female gorilla 'Gana' holds her two-day old offspring at a zoo in Muenster, Germany, Aug. 4. Last year the traumatized gorilla, carried around her dead baby's body for several days, shown at right in Aug. 2008. Gana's very public mourning for her last child gained widespread attention after the baby gorilla, Claudio, died when he was three months old of a severe intestinal infection.
