Second gorilla born at Prague Zoo

30-05-2007

A gorilla has been born at Prague Zoo. The birth took place just after midnight, the zoo's director Petr Fejk told reporters. He said it as a smooth birth and lasted only 15 seconds, adding that the baby was in good health. Two years ago the ape's mother Kijivu gave birth to Moja, the first gorilla born in the Czech Republic. Prague Zoo's gorillas appeared in the media around the world after being featured in The Uncovered, an on-line parody of a Big Brother type reality TV programme.
