- Story Text: A rare set of twin gorilla babies debuted at New York City's Bronx Zoo on Thursday (July 13). The twins are the sixth set to be born in captivity.
The twins, both males, are western lowland gorillas and were born in captivity at the zoo almost a year ago, August 8, 1994.
They had been raised in a zoo nursery until joining three young female gorillas in the zoo's Great Apes exhibit on Thursday.
The group has been called the largest such group at any zoo in the world.
The gorillas are an endangered species native to Congo, Gabon and Central African Republic.
