Gorilla News Archive
Some gorillas, like people, just don't play well with others.
That was the case for Patrick, the 23-year-old, 430-pound Western lowland gorilla at the Dallas Zoo.
He's apparently pretty sexist, nipping and sneering at the female gorillas he should normally be mating with.
He even went as far as to bite one of the ladies!!
Sadly, Patrick is a sweetheart towards people, and a real staff favorite, but he's gotta go because Dallas just isn't the place for him.
He's going to move to Riverbanks Zoo and Gardens in Columbia, S.C. where his behavioral issues can be better handled.
The Zoo has been upset about him leaving, but also about how the media has been "inaccurately" reporting why he's moving, so they took to Facebook to clear the air, writing:
Aww! That's so stinkin' cute!!
We don't know who's cuter… the little girl or the baby gorilla?
This little girl was with her family, just checking out the gorilla exhibit, when a baby gorilla came up to the glass.
We don't know who started it but they began mimicking each other!
It's so adorbz! He bangs on the glass, so then she bangs. He puts his lips against the glass, so she kisses the glass!
Ahh! Cuteness overload!!
Check out the video (above) to see a little girl make a very hairy friend while visiting the zoo!
This is absolutely ahmayzing!!
At Rwanda's Volcanoes National Park, two young mountain gorillas were spotted doing something incredible…
They were dismantling traps set by poachers!!
The pair of young apes were spotted taking apart snares after one of their own was killed by a trap!
It's a boy!!
A beautiful, baby boy Gorilla was born at Columbus Zoo on May 23rd.
The 5-pound cutie was born to proud parents Kambera and Oliver.
Since Kambera was a first time mom and didn't have very good maternal skills, the zoo's animal care experts are raising the little guy themselves.
It sounds sad, maybe even cruel, but if that baby wasn't going to get grade-A care from his mama, we're glad the zookeepers are going to raise the baby ape.
He is being raised in a nurturing environment where he receives around-the-clock care!
That's so great!
They are making sure to raise the little cutie in close proximity to his mama Kambera, at least. They hope to be able to reunite them soon!
He's such a little cutie pie we bet his mama can't wait til he's back in her arms!

We know that once they grow, the babies become adults and that means bone crushing strength!
But for now, this little gorilla is just a baby ape and… wait… there are two of them?!
Twin baby gorillas practicing beating on their chests, rolling around and just generally being super cute?
