Hi, Hasani! SF Zoo's Gorilla Gets Named by Daddy

Hi, Hasani! SF Zoo's Gorilla Gets Named by Daddy

Look at that expression – almost cute enough for a caption contest, I'd say. Meet Hasani, the newly named baby gorilla at the San Francisco Zoo. This lil one made the news when the establishment opened a worldwide naming contest for the (now) 3-month-old babe. His name was chosen by the gorilla's dad, Oscar Jonsey, in a pretty neat way: the 27-year-old animal was offered five color-coded cantaloupes, representing the five name finalists and he picked the green one for this suggestion coming from Amanda VerPloeg of Oskaloosa, IA.
