🦍 BABY GORILLA BORN 🦍
On Wednesday 8th January 2020, Viringika, one of our western lowland gorillas gave birth to this adorable little one. The father of the new arrival is handsome silverback, Kouillou, with this being his 18th infant!
Viringika is doing really well and proving to be a great mum, she is being very protective of the little one so we do not yet know if we have a boy or a girl.
This birth is the 147th western lowland gorilla born across Port Lympne and @howlettspark making us world leaders in breeding these critically endangered animals.
Visitors can already spot the new arrival at the Palace of the Apes, Viringika has been bringing the youngster outside during the 12pm and 3pm scatter feed.
What a great start to the new year!
