cincinnatizoo Meet 16 year old silverback gorilla, Harambe! This large (419 lbs), young silverback is still learning his role as a future leader of his social group. He will have self-assured females Mara & Chewie around as he transitions from a teenager to a confident & well-balanced silverback. The #CincinnatiZoo supports wild conservation efforts to help these critically endangered Western lowland gorillas. #CloseEnoughToCare #Gorilla #Conservation 4d

cincinnatizoo One of the #CZBGLionCubs looks up to her dad, John. There is no set “on exhibit” schedule for the cubs yet, but they will continue to make appearances and have some outside access as the weather gets warmer. (: Jeff McCurry) 2w

cincinnatizoo Kimba is ready for his afternoon snack! Did you know that he stands at around 17ft tall?! His prehensile tongue can wrap around tree branches to pull off his favorite snack, acacia leaves. His slimy tongue also protects him from any thorns that might be on the branches! #closeenoughtocare 4w
