        Gorillas

        In 1956, Snowflake, a white gorilla was captured in the wild and later housed in a zoo in Barcelona, Spain. In years past, captive gorillas were confined to cells alone and fed meat. Now scientists understand that gorillas are vegetarians and should live together as a family. Today, zoos construct environments to reflect gorillas natural habitats. In this video segment from Nature, discover how scientists have learned how to better raise and care for gorillas in captivity and learn about Colo, the first gorilla born in a zoo.
