Twycross Zoo -

Oumbi is a 26-year-old male silverback Western lowland gorilla. He currently lives with females Ozala, Biddi and Asante at Twycross Zoo in Leicestershire, England. He has 3 children with Ozala, all boys. The oldest one, Okanda, was raised by humans after Ozala was unable to produce enough milk. Gorillas Lope and Shufai live with the family. Oumbie has only bred with Ozala. I heard he doesn’t like Asante and she tries to stay out of his way. Grandma Biddy is just not interested.
