Meet Mutobo: a silverback who has built his very own brood.

Once upon a time, Mutobo was known for being solitary (if he were human, we might use “eligible bachelor” to describe him). But that didn’t last too long, since this former lone silverback was able to successfully form his own group. To date, he leads 15 gorillas and has attracted no less than eight females from other gorilla families. Wow!

As you will quickly learn if you symbolically adopt Mutobo, he is a remarkable leader and father, spending many of his waking hours surrounded by his offspring (they LOVE to use him as their personal jungle gym)! All in all, 19-year-old Mutobo has accomplished quite a bit in his relatively young tenure. We can’t wait to see what he does next!
