Very first picture of newborn baby mountain gorilla

  • 24 February 2012

Check out this gorgeous baby gorilla. It was born on Thursday and this is the very first picture of it.

The proud parents are mum Asili and dad Damisi at Chessington World of Adventures.

Keepers at the zoo don't yet know if the baby is a girl or a boy and might not be able to find out for a while.

Both mother and baby are doing well and dad is already getting very protective of the new born.

This is the second mountian gorilla to be born at the park in three years, which is a big success.
