New gorilla at Louisville Zoo

The Louisville Zoo welcomes a new gorilla to its award-winning Gorilla Forest.

The 25-year-old female gorilla named Kweli brings the number of gorillas at the zoo to twelve.

Kweli was born at the Cincinnati Zoo.  She has an 11-year-old blackback gorilla that also is at the Gorilla Forest.

Visitors can recognize Kweli by her short, pudgy stature and a slightly hanging lower lip that reveals its inner pink lining.
