An adorable baby Western lowland gorilla has been born at Bristol Zoo Gardens.
The infant was born to mum Touni and dad Jock in the early hours of Saturday morning.
Keepers are monitoring mum and baby very closely, but say despite being a few hours old, it appears to be strong and Touni is being very attentive.
The Gorilla House is closed to allow mum and baby to rest and bond.
The baby is the eighth gorilla in the troop at the zoo.
Mum Touni arrived as a seven-year-old female in October 2015 from La Vallee des Singes Zoo in France.
