On January 1, 2019 Nene climbed all the way to the top of the tower and climbed on the tallest pylon, stood straight and drummed on her chest. Nene climbs to the top of the tower often. However, she seldom climbs on a pylon and always does so very carefully. 

Never has she stood up and drummed on her chest. This is a very special event to witness. Particularly since she is 46 years old which is a very advanced age for a gorilla. In human years that would likely be equivalent to being in your 90’s. A gorilla’s lifespan is normally between 35 and 40 years


We are all very proud of you!!!
