Baby Gorilla with tough birth shows independence

After a rough start to life, now there is no stopping baby Gorilla Joanne.

She may be tiny, but baby Gorilla Joanne is certainly a fighter.

Just three short months ago the endangered western lowland gorilla was born in San Diego Zoo via a rare emergency C-section, suffering with a collapsed lung and a bout of pneumonia.

Thankfully this feisty little one has made a swift recovery, having even developed quite the reputation for stealing her mum’s food.

Check out Joanne exploring her enclosure while clinging to mum….
