Mother Knows Best, #Philadelphiazoo, Philadelphia PA

It is a joy to watch the baby gorilla, Amani, asking her mother’s permission before she scoots off to play on the Jungle Gym.  Who could resist the soft, hopeful eyes of the baby who already knows that her Mother Knows Best?  This baby gorilla wouldn’t consider departing her mother’s watchful eye without her approval.  Today, Amani is lucky because her mother approves her request for fun and independence.
