After been assessed by the zoo’s vets, the caesarean was carried out by Prof David Cahill at St Michael’s hospital because its mum Kera suffered a life-threatening pre-eclampsia and it was feared that it and it’s unborn baby could die if she went through natural birth.

Prof Cahill, who has done 3,000 C-sections on humans, said: “Along with having my own children, this is probably one of the biggest achievements of my life and something I will certainly never forget.”

The baby gorilla who is now 11 days old is yet to be named.

It is the first time a gorilla has been born by caesarean at the zoo. There have only been a handful of gorilla births worldwide using the procedure.
