It is such good news to hear that She is doing so good and that she is celebrating another birthday. I know she has won the hearts of all who have gotten to know here. When I look at pictures of the primates like her, my attention is always drawn to the character of the face. Beautiful work my friend. #10386373

Description

Vila has long been a favorite of visitors and staff at the San Diego Zoo’s Wild Animal Park. She is one of the three oldest known gorillas living today. She was 55 years old on October 28th!!!

Although she is “up there”in age, Vila is in excellent health, has a good appetite, and normal behavior. She does have some age-related issues, so she does get senior vitamins and medicine for arthritis, which works well: she has no trouble getting around.
