Lincoln Park Zoo in Chicago is excited to announce that the baby gorilla born last month is a girl! The zoo has named the little one Patty, in honor of Patty Meyers, who was a long-time supporter of Lincoln Park Zoo.
Both Patty and her mother Bana are doing well and will continue to be monitored by zoo staff.
Bana enjoys a healthy snack while caring for 1-month-old Patty.
Kwibi is a ten year old lowland gorilla who has spent the last five years of his life living in the forests of Gabon. The first five years of his life he spent being raised by Damian Aspinall at a wild animal park in England. In this incredible video we join Damian as he searches for his old friend.
