A bittersweet day for fans of this amazing animal!
Pattycake, america's favorite gorilla, passed away yesterday at the Bronx Zoo. Her death happened she was experiencing cardiac problems.
She was forty years old.
Here's what the Bzoo's director said:
A baby gorilla named
Gladys is being raised temporarily by human parents!
Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden believe Gladys will eventually be able to live with fellow gorillas, but in the meantime - they've ordered custom faux gorilla vests, so they can nurse little Gladys
Here's what a Zoo person said:
The illegal wildlife trade is literally a multibillion-dollar industry!
The same type of trafficking that's almost made tigers extinct is now threatening great apes!
Chimps, orangoutangs, gorillas and bonobos are all being plucked from their natural habitats and bought by private collectors or disreputable zoos.
The numbers are cray cray!
Motion-triggered digital camera traps have given scientists a brand new way to study wild animals. And this method gets up close and personal!!
Managed by Conservation International, the network has deployed camera traps across 16 sites in Asia, Africa and Latin America, at each site, the traps collect up to 60,000 images every year - which may help scientists collect data that would have otherwise taken years to organize.
(Above) is only one of the many wild animals' portraits that have been taken, and we hope to see much MORE of these pictures.
We can't stop until we get enough!!!
See more animals…
AFTER THE JUMP!!!
Colo has seen a lot of things in her life…and she gets to celebrate her 56th birthday this past weekend!
Born December 22 in 1956, Colo is a modern marvel. Not only is she the oldest known gorilla in the world, she was also the first gorilla born in captivity under human care.
So this is how the
Planet of the Apes starts! LOLz!
But that's not all!
