Baby gorilla born

Bristol Zoo is delighted to announce the birth of a baby gorilla. The infant was born to mum, Touni, and dad Jock in the early hours of this morning (Saturday).

Keepers will be monitoring mum and baby very closely over the coming days and weeks. Despite being just a few hours old, the baby appears strong and mum is being very attentive. The Gorilla House is closed to allow Touni time to rest quietly and bond with her new infant.

Further updates will be made early next week.
