Gorilla is born by caesarean section

Gorilla is born by caesarean section

04-03-2016 15:00

This news is from a zoo. The zoo is in England. A gorilla is pregnant. She has problems. People must take out the baby. They carry out the caesarean section.

The baby is fine. She is a girl. She is one kilogram heavy. She hasn’t got a name yet, but she already likes her mother. She is quite emotional.

No animal doctor does the caesarean section. A doctor for humans does it. He says that gorillas are like humans.

Difficult words: pregnant (with a baby inside the belly), carry out (to do), caesarean section (when you open a mother’s belly and take out the baby).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
