A baby gorilla has been born at San Diego Zoo Safari Park, much to the surprise of zoo keepers.

The western lowland gorilla baby was born during the night, so when keepers arrived on Wednesday morning they were shocked to see the baby gorilla in her mothers' arms.

It was born to gorillas Kokomo and Winston, and is their second baby. The zoo now owns eight western lowland gorillas.

The baby has not yet been named, but you can watch a video of her below [she looks far too young and innocent to try and escape, unlike her British counterparts].
