The gorilla in the picture is six weeks old and lives in Germany. She was in a hospital because she was neglected by her parents.
Mary Zwo, which means Mary Two in English, and her mother were attacked by the baby gorilla's father. They were then taken away from the other gorillas. Mary Zwo's mother, who missed the other gorillas, then neglected her baby. Mary Zwo got very sick.
On June 30, zoo workers at Muenster Zoo rescued Mary Zwo. They took her to a hospital for humans. Gorilla babies are almost like human babies. This meant the hospital could take care of her.
Mary Zwo was placed in a special machine called an incubator. After a day at the hospital, she was sent back to the zoo.
A vet at the zoo checked Mary Zwo. The vet said she was strong enough to travel. Mary Zwo was placed in a special car seat for babies and taken to Stuttgart. At Stuttgart, she will be raised with other baby gorillas.
