The birth was filmed by the zoo’s primate keeper Damian Lewis and manager Harna Burton. In the video, while the zoo staff argue over whether the baby is a boy or a girl, Kimya takes motherhood in her stride, looking after her baby like a seasoned pro. Upon witnessing the birth, Burton said:
“Definitely, most amazing thing I’ve ever seen and I’m so proud of my team. It’s been amazing.”
