Baby orangutan born at Zoo Atlanta

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA -

Zoo Atlanta is welcoming a brand new addition. Blaze, 16-year-old Sumatran Orangutan, gave birth to a baby boy on Thursday.

Zoo officials say mother and baby are both doing well after the C-section delivery.

While Blaze is recovering from surgery, the infant is being cared for by a specialty veterinarian team.

The hope is to introduce the two soon as possible so they can begin to bond.
