Germany: Happy birthday Fatou! Gorilla turns 59 in Berlin Zoo

Female gorilla Fatou celebrated her 59th birthday at her enclosure in Berlin Zoo on Wednesday morning with a delicious gift basket full of healthy fruit and vegetables.


SOT, Christian Aust, Zookeeper (German): "In captivity, where the medical handling is much better, we can say that a gorilla and other ape species can be 50 or 52 years old and that would be already very highly estimated. And Fatou thar is 59 constitutes an absolute exception. She is the oldest gorilla in Europe and the second oldest in the world."
