There's a new member of the menagerie at Busch Gardens in Tampa. The park announced Thursday that a male western lowland gorilla was born at the theme park on Aug. 18. The baby, Oliver, is being cared for by its 28-year-old mother, Mary, in the park's Myombe Reserve habitat. Mary came to the park in 2010 from a zoo in Texas. The father is 10-year-old Bolingo, born at Busch Gardens in 2005. The park is now home to seven gorillas total, a news release said.
