    The Como Zoo, for the first time since they started displaying them 55 years ago, has pregnant Gorillas! Two of it's females, Dara and Alice are expecting with the offspring of longtime resident Schroeder.

    That would be crushing to loose their first baby gorilla after working so long and hard to prepare for it. Hopefully though it will be a learning experience for staff and the other gorillas, though not in the same ways. The other pregnant gorilla hopefully saw good mothering behaviour from Alice and will do the same with her baby.
