Baby gorilla Afia gets her first taste of fresh air

This is a story about a Gorilla who had to be born through a caesarean operation in the United Kingdom. Now, the UK is not the warmest of places, so the staff had to keep the baby gorilla very warm by keeping the baby close to their bodies.

Seven-week-old Afia, the first gorilla born by caesarean section in the UK, blinked in the bright sunshine but looked contented as her keepers began familiarising her with the British climate.
