Haoko was born on August 21, 1983. His father was Kibabu and his mother was Mouila. Kibabu was born at Apenheul Primate Park in the Netherlands. On December 6, 1996 he was transferred to Taronga Zoo in Sydney, Australia along with the rest of his family. On June 27, 2007 Haoko was transferred to Japan along with his brother Shabani as part of a coordinated breeding program to ensure genetic diversity. While Shabani was transferred to Higashiyama Zoo in Nagoya, Japan. Haoko was sent to Ueno Zoological Gardens in Tokyo, Japan.

Haoko has 4 wives but has only bred with Momoko. Together they have 3 children. Two girls and one boy. They had another baby which was stillborn on October 12, 2016. Both Shabani and Haoko are well known for being very loving and playful with their children. Much more than other silverbacks.

This is a very funny video of Haoko taking off with baby Komomo and keeping it from a very anxious mother Momoko. He ran all around their enclosure for around 10 minutes with the baby. Poor Momoko chased him all around hoping to get her baby back soon.
