Kouillou the Gorilla
Location: Port Lympne
Date Of Birth: 01/01/1984
A Congolese orphan, Kouillou was born in the dense tropical rainforests of northern Congo in the early 1980's before being captured by hunters for eventual sale to a dealer in the Republic of Congo's capital city of Brazzaville. Fortunately, Kouillou was rescued and in 1987, when he was 2 or 3 years old, he was transferred to Howletts to join our breeding program for this critically endangered species. Despite his undoubtedly traumatic start to life, he has grown into a charming adult who is mellowing with age.
