Ooh La La! Photo Has London Gorillas Swooning over French Mate

Posted on

Mjukuu the gorilla and her gal pals at the London Zoo were given photos of their new male mate Yeboah on Thursday – and judging by their reactions, they’re more than just a little excited about the new arrival! Yeboah has received pictures of the ladies as well, to familiarize him with his soon-to-be cohabitants before the big move.

The three single female gorillas – Mjukuu, 10; Effie, 16; and Zaire, 34 – have been without a male since December, when silverback pal Bobby passed away. So, zoo officials are importing the 12-year-old Yeboah from France’s La Boissiere du Dore Zoo in a few weeks, in hopes that he’ll impregnate Mjukuu – who’s reportedly a big flirt. We can’t wait to see what happens on their first date!
