The 50th gorilla born at the Cincinnati Zoo has been given a name by its keepers. 

The female was born August 25 and gorilla keepers suggested two names for the baby and followers on social media voted for their favorite. 

It was announced that she will be called "Elle" which represents the Roman numeral L for 50. 

Elle's outdoor exhibit appearances are weather and health dependent, stated zoo officials. 

If weather is warm enough keepers will put her group out in the morning and the other gorilla group out in the afternoon. 

According to the zoo, the best chance to spot the new baby girl is at 10 a.m.

The zoo opens daily at 10 a.m. and closes at 5 p.m.
