That face! Pende as he is affectionately called shows off his playful side

A member of zoo staff said: ‘Curious and playful, middle-brother Pende is known for charging the glass while shrieking loudly and alarming visitors.’

Despite his boisterous ways, the animal care staff said that he’s charming, laid-back, and peaceable.

Staff said that they were initially anxious to witness the power struggle as the three half-brothers matured into silverback gorillas.
