A pregnant gorilla at a zoo in England had problems, and the baby had to be taken out by caesarean section. The baby gorilla is the first gorilla to be successfully born by caesarean section.
The baby hasn’t got a name yet, but she is over a kilo heavy and doing fine. A zookeeper said that she already has quite a strong character like her mother. She lets people know when she’s awake and when she’s hungry.
Unusually, a human gynaecologist carried out the caesarean section. He said that the operation was very similar to operating on a human.
