Unique Birth: Gorilla Twins 2013-06-13 Burgers’ Zoo Arnhem, The Netherlands


This is three minutes and nineteen seconds of sheer tenderness coming from one of the strongest animal on our planet. What is fascinating is those two extremes coming from, what seems like a block of concrete on a first encounter.

Enjoy it and let me know what your impressions were 馃檪

2013-06-13 In the Dutch Burgers’ Zoo in Arnhem a unique moment took place, N’Gayla a gorilla in captivety gave birth to twins. It was known that the 20-year-old female gorilla was pregnant, but not that she was expecting two baby gorillas, furthermore special was that she was expected to give birth later this summer. Main Carer Wilco Limpers: “At first I didn’t notice that she was having a twin birth, I was filming N’Gayla how she licked her young born clean and ate the afterbirth, then N’Gayla suddenly grabbed something out from the straw:.. another gorillaaaaaa! I really did not know what I saw.A twin birth from gorillas is only occurs about once or twice every ten years in European zoos. “Gorillas usually get only one young at a time. Twin births are for them rarer than in humans. Mother and babies are doing well and the newborns have been seen drinking. Mother N’Gayla literally has her hands full with her 鈥嬧媗ittle ones.
Gorillatweeling verrast Burgers’ zoo. In de Arnhemse dierentuin Burgers’ Zoo is in de nacht van woensdag op donderdag 12/13 juni 2013 een gorillatweeling geboren. Moeder is N’Gayla , vader is Bauwi. Een unicum, aldus Burgers’, omdat bij gorilla’s tweelinggeboortes nog zeldzamer zijn dan bij mensen.In dierentuinen komt zo’n geboorte 茅茅n 脿 twee keer per 10 jaar voor. Van moeder N’Gayla was bekend dat ze drachtig was, maar de geboorte werd pas later in de zomer verwacht. De verrassing was groot voor de verzorgers toen ze donderdagochtend eerst 茅茅n en later een tweede jong zagen. Moeder en jongen maken ‘t goed en zijn inmiddels buiten te zien. Volgens Burgers’ zijn het een mannetje en een vrouwtje. Music: My First Love by Ernesto Cortazar.
