Baby Gorilla Born by C-Section Battling Pneumonia

abc baby gorilla mar 140318 16x9 608 Baby Gorilla Born by C Section Battling Pneumonia

            The pneumonia suffering gorilla was born on March 12 at San Diego Zoo through a C-section. The doctors have been working with this poor gorilla all weekend and pretty sure this gorilla has pneumonia. Day by day, this creature is getting better. Doctor Dawn Reeves says that her performance is a lot different then the other gorillas and can may effect the test she might has to do. Her 18 year old mom, Imani, even had difficulties having her. It took her 12 hours, for an usual gorilla it takes 4 hours. Now her mom is back with her troop but is being very carefully watched over.

My Reaction:
           I know this gorilla is going through a lot right now. Pneumonia can kill you and this creature is going through this like a strong adult gorilla and with the help of the doctors ,she is doing very well. I hope everyday she get stronger and healthy. I'm glad we have doctors like this, because if we didn't the population for creatures would be very low. Hope this pneumonia fades away.

  1. Awe, i think that is sad to see the baby gorilla suffer like that. I'm glad to see that they are doing something to try to help the gorilla. I did not even know that a gorilla could get pneumonia. i hope the gorilla gets better and is safe.
