As we watched the gorillas in the zoo’s Great Ape House, Calaya lay on her back atop a thin fire hose stretched high between tree limbs.
She weighs over a hundred and fifty pounds, and the flattened hose was only a few inches wide. Calaya doesn’t like to step on the ground—one of her quirks—so the zoo has arranged milk cartons for her to sit or step on.

Louis Zoo runs a reproductive-management center on contraception for all North American zoos.) Kibibi, third female, age nine, tends to outperform the National Zoo’s other five gorillas in cognitive research tests.

A troop usually consists of one adult silverback—named for the thick silver hair running from their conical heads, down their broad backs, to their narrow torsos—with two to four females.
