http://bit.ly/p92E1t - Staff at Bristol Zoo Gardens are celebrating the birth of a baby western lowland gorilla. This video shows footage of the baby gorilla with it's mum just 10 minutes after being born!
The baby was born at lunchtime today (Tuesday September 27) by natural birth to Salome, and both mother and baby appear to be doing well.
The Gorilla House has been temporarily closed to allow the gorillas, including Dad Jock, time to bond with the new arrival.
The youngster, which is yet to be named, is the perfect gift for the Zoo, which this year celebrates its 175th birthday and is participating the European Zoo Association's Ape Campaign, which aims to raise awareness of the threats facing gorillas in the wild.
