    This guide will take you into near complete detail of the gorillas that have come and gone at the Cincinnati Zoo, the US gorilla birth capital. I don't think I named all of them but I will add to the list if I find more. The next time I'll do this sort of thing is for the Columbus Zoo.

    Very interesting. Do you have any information on the Cincinnati Zoo's bonobos?

    I have looked into it while I was in the middle of creating this and I couldn't find anything. I'll keep looking now though.

    This must be incomplete because the zoo has had 48 gorilla births, I counted only 43.

    You forgot about Gigi. Gigi is sister to Samantha and Ramses I, and daughter of King Tut and Penelope. She was born in 1972, is still alive, and has had two sons (Kubandu and Quito) with a male named Sam, but has outlived all three. Gigi was hand reared, and today lives at the Franklin Park Zoo in Boston. She is especially unique because when she was taught some sign language at a young age.

    Edit: She is also the sister of Tara, who I believe passed away in 1990, but am unsure.
