It’s a girl !

A zoo in Bristol has announced the birth of a baby gorilla by a rare emergency caesarean.

It is thought to be the first time a newborn gorilla has survived in the UK following a caesarean birth, and is among just a handful of such cases worldwide.

The 11-day old Western lowland gorilla – a critically endangered species – was delivered by gynaecologist Professor David Cahill who has delivered hundreds of human babies by C-section, but never a gorilla.
