A 31-year old gorilla named Ernie is a proud father of two at the Bronx Zoo.
Two western lowland gorillas have been born at the Bronx Zoo, which is run by the Wildlife Conservation Society, since early March.
According to a Live Science report on Discovery News, 33-year-old Julia the gorilla gave birth on March 10, while Tuti, 19, gave birth to her baby gorilla on April 17. It was the second child for Julia, although the youngster’s gender has not yet been determined.
The New York Daily News reports that as long as the weather permits, the two baby gorillas will be on display at the Congo Gorilla Forest of the Bronx Zoo. The Gorilla Forest now has 20 gorillas, the largest collection of the animals in North America.
