Baby gorilla shows 'strong grip' in mother's arms in Bristol


A baby gorilla is thriving four weeks after being born at Bristol Zoo Gardens. The tiny western lowland gorilla was born to mother Kala and father Jock last month. It arrived almost a year after Kala lost her first baby after undergoing an emergency Caesarean. Keepers say the baby is very alert and looking around but still sleeping a lot in Kala’s arms. They regularly see the baby feeding and it is growing well.
