Baby Gorilla Gender Reveal
Our proud gorilla parents, 11-year-old Margaret & 26-year-old Mbundi, as well as the entire Gladys Porter Zoo staff, are excited about the birth of a baby Western lowland gorilla. The baby, weighing in at 2.22 kg (4.8 lbs), was born in the early morning hours on Sunday, May 5th.
To celebrate this Cinco de Mayo baby, Zoo staff will be holding a gender reveal on Wednesday, May 15th at 10:30 a.m., complete with a piñata and bolis, for our guests while supplies last. Come watch as our gorillas tear open a giant pinata to reveal the gender of our newest addition.
