There were emotional scenes when gorilla brotherswho hadn’t seen each other for more than two years were reunited for the firsttime at Longleat Safari & Adventure Park.
The brothers, who were born at Dublin Zoo, met up again at the spectacular new Gorilla Colony enclosure at the Wiltshire safaripark.
At around 220 kgs, 13-year-old western lowland silverback gorilla Kesho is a force to be reckoned with and keepers were unsure how he would react to meeting up with his nine-year-old kid brother Alf.
However there was no need to be worried as the brothers acted like they had never been apart.
Kesho was moved from Dublin to London Zoo as partof a captive breeding programme and hadn’t seen his siblings since.
Now all three are making a new home at Longleat in their purpose-built new Gorilla Colony alongside a fourth male gorilla called Boulas.
