Your morning adorable: Baby western lowland gorilla at the San Diego Zoo

Frank the gorilla

Frank, an 8-month-old western lowland gorilla, is among the youngest residents of the San Diego Zoo's Gorilla Tropics exhibit. (Not just gorillas live in the exhibit: bonobos, colobus monkeys and crowned eagles also call it home.)

Frank weighed in at about 5 1/2 pounds at birth -- not too different from a human infant -- but as an adult, he's expected to grow to weigh 400 pounds! 

For more information on Frank and his gorilla family, check out his Facebook fan page for updates, more photos and video.
