Love in her eyes: Martha the western lowland gorilla tenderly embraces her two-week-old baby at Gladys Porter Zoo in Texas yesterday. This photo is probably one of the most touching ones I've ever seen showing this mother treating her baby as lovingly as a human mother; and to think some still poach these beautiful creatures to make ashtrays out of their hands. Humans, who can do this are monsters, plus the baby is orphaned and will most likely die.
