Baby Gorilla Recovering

An 8-day-old female gorilla who was delivered by cesarean section at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park has significantly improved after surgery for a collapsed lung and treatment with antibiotics for pneumonia. “She’s getting a lot of calories and you can see that she changes every day,” said veterinarian Nadine Lamberski, the park’s associate director of veterinary services. The mother, who experienced a difficult labor, has rejoined the other gorillas. Los Angeles Times (tiered subscription model)/L.A. Now blog (3/19)
