BOSTON (CBS) – It’s a baby girl for Franklin Park Zoo parents Kiki and Kitombe!

The baby gorilla, born November 3, had her first well-baby physical Wednesday morning, and by all reports, the proud couple’s third girl is strong and healthy.

Baby #3 weighs in at 6.6 lbs and is 18 inches long.  But the fun is just about to start…because the newborn gorilla needs a name!

Starting Friday, December 17th, visitors can submit their own ideas for a name at the Zoo’s gorilla exhibit.  Think fast, because visitors can only make submissions through February 25, 2011.

The winning entry gets a family membership to the Zoo, and a behind-the-scenes tour.
