A MUMMY gorilla snuggles up with her very rare newborn at a US zoo.
A team of specialists helped western lowland gorilla Kiki have an emergency C-section last week.
Her baby, which has yet to be named, weighed in at 6lb 3oz.
He is the first male gorilla to be born at Franklin Park Zoo in Boston, Massachusetts.
Western lowland gorillas are critically endangered.

Dr Eric Baitchman said: “For the health of mum and baby, it was imperative to quickly diagnose Kiki’s condition and perform a C-section before she went into labour on her own.
“We were fortunate to quickly mobilize an amazing team with our colleagues at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine.
“This was truly a team effort, and we are relieved and happy that the surgery went smoothly and that mom and baby are both safe and healthy.”
