Mama orangutan bonds with baby at Memphis Zoo

Animal babies always make us smile! Take a look at the tiny bundle of joy getting a lot of love at the Memphis Zoo.

The baby boy orangutan was born by C-section.

Mom and baby were separated for eleven days while she recuperated from surgery.

Zoo workers bottle-fed the baby, and hung him from a shawl so he could start learning normal orangutan behavior.

Mom has fully recovered and is now taking over. You can see how thrilled she is to see her newborn.
