LOS ANGELES (AP) - It's a girl. The Los Angeles Zoo announced Monday that its staff have determined the sex of a Western lowland gorilla that was born on Jan. 18.

The baby, who doesn't yet have a name, is the first gorilla born at the zoo in more than 20 years.

She's the first child for 25-year-old N'djia (en-JEE'-uh), who came to the zoo in 2018 from the San Diego Zoo as part of a breeding project.

The father is a 32-year-old named Kelly. Western lowland gorillas are critically endangered because of poaching, diseases and habitat loss.
