The Gulf Breeze Zoo currently has three gorillas in residence: Babuka, a silverback male; Rwanda, a female; and Kigali, a young male. In a zoo environment, gorillas can live to be 50 years old or more.

In the wild, the largest primates in the world today, gorillas range in height from an average of 4 feet to nearly 6 feet and weigh as much as 440 pounds in their native habitat of equatorial Africa. They generally live in family groups consisting of five to 10 gorillas with an adult male at the head of the family.

Head over to Gulf Breeze Zoo to wish this big guy a very happy birthday! More info on the Gulf Breeze Zoo here.
