Sibling Milestones

11/06/2017

Philadelphia Zoo's western lowland gorilla youngsters continue to grow! Amani and Ajabu are happily growing up together as any siblings would! Ajabu recently broke contact with mom, Kira and can often be seen venturing off in his exhibit under his mother's close eye. Amani, too, surprises Zoo staff and guests each day as she continues to grow and develop her adventurous and inquisitive personality. Guests may often see Amani take an interest in her younger brother or spending more time with dad, Motuba.
