The 8-day old gorilla that has captured hearts around the world since her birth in San Diego took her first bottle Wednesday.
The baby gorilla quickly gulped down the infant formula fed to her by veterinary staff members at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park.
It was the first time the baby was strong enough to breath on her own since her birth on March 12.
The zoo staff says the female gorilla was "showing great improvement" after being treated for pneumonia.
It's been a tough week for the newborn who was delivered via emergency C-section.
She was immediately treated for a collapsed lung and then monitored round-the-clock while in critical care.
According to the zoo, the baby’s mother, 18-year-old Imani, is doing well after surgery and has returned to her regular habitat.
