So what is it a girl or boy?

So far, Dublin zoo staff have been unable to determine the sex of the infant as Vana has been keeping the baby close to her chest.

Aisling Kenneally, Zoo Keeper at Dublin Zoo commented on the arrival saying that: “We’re delighted to announce that a second baby gorilla has been born at Dublin Zoo this year. As western lowland gorillas are critically endangered, it’s amazing that we have had not only one but two new births within a few months.''

Dublin zoo will be hosting a naming competition in due course. More details to follow on Dublin Zoo's Social Media.
