Today -- and using safari park we're very excited we did a physical introductions of the new baby gorilla which is born twelve days ago. To -- on the money and it went fantastic what we're looking for isn't what -- -- reaction to the baby was going to be. From the moment we put it in with her we gave her access to the baby she immediately went right up to the baby. Picked it up and held it which is exactly what we are looking for so we're thrilled. Initially she was just carrying the baby she never took the baby down which is really what we are looking for and about three hours -- she began nursing babies and then after. About a five minute nursing -- the baby fell asleep which is exactly what we are looking for so. We're really excited we are cautiously optimistic that this trend of nursing the baby will continue. But we will continue with a -- -- -- watch on baby and mom. But at least the next 24 hours to see that this behavior continues.
