The newest and cutest resident at Gulf Breeze Zoo in Florida celebrated its one-month birthday on Thursday.

The zoo says the baby gorilla is progressing well as he is teething and has just started to crawl.

According to handlers at the zoo, the baby gorilla is frequently eating and gaining more weight as well.

A contest to help name the baby is also under way. Voting will begin next week, and the gorilla will be named by the middle of March.
