Baby gorilla with human parents!

Gladys the gorilla has some quite unusual parents.

The two-month-old was rejected by her own mother, so is now being raised by humans at a zoo in the US.

The little gorilla is being cared for by a team of 10 keepers who work in shifts around the clock.

Her team of parents have to wear special furry suits and crawl around with Gladys on their backs to help her think they are the real thing.

They hope that by "gorillafying" her one day she'll be able to be kept with other gorillas.
