Colo the Gorilla Turns 60

She is the mother of three, grandmother of 16, great-grandmother of 12 and great-great grandmother of 3. She recently had surgery to remove a malignant tumor, but doctors say she is doing well. She’s Colo, the nation’s oldest living gorilla, and she’s turning 60 today at the Columbus Zoo. Colo was the first gorilla in the world born in a zoo and has surpassed the usual life expectancy of captive gorillas by two decades. Her longevity is putting a spotlight on the medical care, nutrition and up to date therapeutic techniques that are helping lengthen zoo animals’ lives. (Source: AP)
