Colo, the first gorilla to be born in captivity, was born at the Columbus, Ohio
zoo. Rejected at birth by her mother, zookeepers had to hand-raise Colo
much like a human child, by dressing her in clothes and giving her bottle of
formula. At the age of two years old,she was introduced to a 19-month-old
male from Africa called Bongo. The couple had three offspring, the first
on February 1, 1968, Emmy, a female, Oscar, born July 18, 1969, and
Toni, on December 28, 1971.

Colo is now the oldest living gorilla in captivity, following the death of 55-year-
old Jenny in September 2008.
