Gorilla welfare: Koga, the western lowland, undergoes a health MOT

Behind the scenes photographs show what it’s like to get a closer look at a 181kg gorilla, as it lay unconscious during a physical examination.

Koga, a 34-year-old western lowland gorilla, undergoes a health MOT every other year to make sure everything is in order.

Christan Dobosiewicz, 30, captured the images of Koga who has been at The Buffalo Zoo, in New York, since 2007.
