The Philadelphia Zoo just welcomed a new addition to their growing animal kingdom family: an adorable baby gorilla.

The zoo is waiting to identify the baby's gender before coming up with name options. The best part is that you—yes, you—could eventually have the chance to help name it: A zoo spokesperson told Travel + Leisure that once the team that has cared for the gorilla comes up with some options, the public will be able to choose their favorite.

This is just about as cute as that time a red panda escaped a zoo in China and went on a year-long solo adventure.

If you're looking for more baby animals you can visit around the world, walk right this way.
