Tilla the Gorilla was born at Berlin Zoo the night of February 15, 2021. She is the first offspring for gorilla mom Bibi (24) and silverback Sango (17). The extended family has mastered the first year with flying colors. "Tilla has developed splendidly since her birth. Mother Bibi is caring for her offspring and Sango is also living up to his fatherly role," explains district manager Christian Aust. "Tilla is now becoming more and more independent and courageous, curiously exploring every corner of the enclosure and sometimes dangling upside down from a liana."
