RIP Colo

Colo, briefly known as Cuddles, and who was the oldest known gorilla in the world, has died at the ripe old age of 60.

She was the first gorilla to be born in captivity, and was born (and died) at the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium in Ohio, US, to parents Millie Christina and Baron Macombo. In the wild gorillas may live just half Colo’s lifetime.

Her favourite snack was apparently tomatoes.
