Baby gorilla takes his first steps!

A baby gorilla so small zookeepers have named him 'Tiny', has taken his first steps at London Zoo.

And the guys who look after the gorillas caught it all on camera when the three-month-old left his mum's side for the first time to do a little bit of exploring.

Tiny has clung to his mother since birth so his keepers were over the moon to see him off on his own.

Keeper Daniel Simonds said: "Tiny is also getting his first teeth through at the moment. However he still has a long way to go before he becomes a twenty-five stone silverback gorilla."
