Imported German gorilla leads to baby boom at Dutch zoo

A female Western Lowland Gorilla has given birth to a healthy baby at Amsterdam's Artis Zoo, the first there in 10 years, after being impregnated by an imported German male, zoo spokesman Bart Kret said Wednesday.

The father, "Akili" arrived in September 2005 and has impregnated the new baby's mother "Binti" as well as two other females, "Dafina" and "Shindy." Dafina and Shindy are both due to give birth in late summer, he said.

The baby, born on Tuesday, has not yet been named, since keepers are not sure of its gender, reports AP.

Gorillas are an endangered species in Africa, but births in captivity are not rare.
