Just along for the ride This infant lowland gorilla hangs on to her mom's leg as she forages around for munchies. This little cutie was born last September at Zoo Atlanta- Her name is Mijadala, or Mija for short. It translates roughly from Swahili for "chatty" as she is apparently a very vocal girl.
