The 6-week-old male, a baby Sumatran orangutan, was born Jan. 14 at Georgia's Zoo Atlanta after his mother, Blaze, went into labor unexpectedly. Following an emergency C-section, the adorable ape struggled to survive – but eventually pulled through and has since made a full recovery.
Though he has yet to be named, he is getting to know his fellow orangutans at the zoo's habitat, including Mom. The baby and Blaze were reintroduced after she recovered from the procedure.
