At the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden, a team of human surrogates has been working around the clock to care for Gladys, an 8-week-old female western lowland gorilla. Human caretakers have been showing Gladys the ins and outs of being a gorilla since she arrived at the zoo on Feb. 22. The plan is to introduce Gladys to the zoo's gorillas so one of the females will "adopt" her. Gladys' natural mother rejected her soon after birth.
