WACO, TX (KXXV) -

Cameron Park Zoo said that the new orangutan baby, Razak, has been diagnosed with an inguinal hernia.

An inguinal hernia is a protrusion of abdominal cavity contents through the inguinal canal.

The zoo said this is a common condition in human infants, but it requires surgery to correct.

They said that the zoo’s veterinarian has put together a team of specialist for the procedure.
