WATCH: The incredible story behind this tiny gorilla's miracle birth

Lest you think we're just all about the adorable, we're presenting this video of a baby gorilla to you as a science lesson, since its birth at the Bristol Zoo is actually a bit of a rare feat. 

This unnamed baby girl-rilla was delivered by a super unusual Caesarean section after her mom developed pre-eclampsia, and weighed in just under 3 lbs when she arrived in early Feb. 

We should warn you: There's a few seconds of surgery, followed by glorious minutes of teeny tiny baby gorilla squeeeee-ness.
