Zoo Atlanta officials say Kudzoo, daughter of famed western lowland gorilla Willie B., is expecting her second infant in the spring. Zoo officials estimate she is about two and a half months into her pregnancy, which typically lasts about eight months in gorillas.
Kudzoo is being watched closely by zoo officials. She had a miscarriage earlier this year after becoming pregnant in 2009.
The zoo has the nation's largest collection of western lowland gorillas with 23 of the primates living in Atlanta.
