Meet Gracie, the Zoo's new gorilla

Gracie is the newest gorilla at the Zoo, arriving in August. Zoo staff hopes that Gracie’s arrival will bring about a successful gorilla breeding, a potential first in Fort Worth Zoo’s history. Although Gracie has never been a mother, she had extensive interaction with a baby gorilla in her former troop at the Oklahoma City Zoo and is believed to have mothering potential. Gracie is also a twin – a rare occurrence in gorilla births. Gracie can be found exploring her new exhibit in the outdoor area of World of Primates.
