Image: Colo's Story: The Life of One Grand Gorilla (Columbus Zoo Books for Young Readers Collection), by Nancy Roe Pimm (Author), Jack Hanna (Foreword). Publisher: Columbus Zoo and Aquarium; 1st edition (March 2011)First Gorilla Born in Captivity (1956)
-- Colo (December 22, 1956 – January 17, 2017) was a western gorilla widely known as the first gorilla to be born in captivity anywhere in the world and as the oldest known gorilla in the world. Colo was born at the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium to Millie Christina (mother) and Baron Macombo (father), and lived there for her entire life. She was briefly called Cuddles before a contest was held to officially name her. (Mrs. Howard Brannon of Zanesville, Ohio, won the contest.) Colo's name was derived from the place of her birth, Columbus, Ohio.

Read: Colo's Story: The Life of One Grand Gorilla
-- When Colo was born unexpectedly on the cold concrete floor of the zoo on December 22, 1956, the book, How to Raise a Baby Gorilla didn't exist. So, the keepers at the Columbus Zoo raised Colo the only way they knew as if she were a human baby. She wore diapers, drank from bottles, and had an entire wardrobe of baby clothes. Follow Colo's amazing journey from a cuddly baby to a feisty toddler, to a mother of three, to the matriarch of one very large gorilla family and now the oldest living gorilla in the world. Colo has done more than live her own amazing life; she has helped teach generations of zookeepers and veterinarians learn what is best for all gorillas in captivity.
