Blondes have more fun, in gorilla accessories

The Associated Press reports that a baby gorilla moved from Texas "has made her debut at the Cincinnati Zoo with some of the humans who have served as surrogate mothers for her."

Lowland gorilla Gladys Stones, now 3 months old, was presented Tuesday, along with her caregivers, dressed in gorilla accessories. They wear black gloves, very hairy vest-like garments and black pants, but most of the keepers appear to have blond hair.

Gladys was born Jan. 29 at the Gladys Porter Zoo in Brownsville, Texas. Her mother rejected her, and she was moved to Cincinnati in February.

A Cincinnati Zoo spokeswoman quoted in the AP story says about 10 people have been caring for Gladys until one of four gorillas at the zoo is selected to be her surrogate mother and the tryout begins.
