I would too. I took care of a baby gorilla from the Detroit Zoo when I was 20 years old in an apartment inside an animal hospital. I was in prevet school at the time and a practicing Vet Tech. I loved it.....the gorilla experience was a great experience. We bonded and I was so sad when they took her back. Ughhhhhhhhhh No different than raising an infant. My girlfriend would rock her and sing songs to her.
