Caught on Camera

May 24, 2016

Congo Gorilla Forest is more active than ever. Right now, our troupe boasts five youngsters who spend their days climbing, eating, or hitching a ride on mom. Luckily, we've caught a few of their most precious moments on camera. We rounded up some of our favorites for you to enjoy below. Make sure to visit the group soon, before they're all grown up!


Whether it's snack time or play time, it's more fun with a friend.
