Twycross zoo is having an enrichment day for the animals and thrown lots of colourful balls and some boxes into the enclosure. The new orangutan mum with her baby in her arms decided it looks all a bit messy and starts cleaning up by putting all the balls back into the box. Still with her newborn in her arms, she then carries the boxes with the balls in her mouth all the way up to the top of her climbing frame. She only drops one red ball! What a champ.
Gorilla mother Ozala is showering her baby Shufai with kisses. Watching this heart warming bond between Mother and son. A great mum, always looking out for him.
It’s Tulis 10th Birthday. Twycross zoo made the celebration special by putting on a special feast out for the chimps including the layered frozen ice cake. They whole enclosure got decorated with hats, plates and paper chains and lots of scattered food.
Look out for the chimp that really gets in the party mood, by having the paper chain around his neck!! You would of thought he just got caught up in it, but watch closely! He actually looses the paper chain a couple of times and puts it back around his neck!
A great Party Twycross!
After the scary incident with Lope and his Dad, here is a video that is more heartwarming. Mum and Lope finally having a good play, cuddle and just some quality time together. Baby brother Shufai is playing in the back.
Can I just say a big thank you to all my subscribers for watching and supporting my channel. Of course also to my occasional watchers, hopefully you might subscribe in the future 🙂 It is my pleasure to show you the continuing story of Lope and his family and that you enjoy it as much as I do!
Oumbi the gorilla from Twycross zoo is quite agitated by the fact that he and his family been locked outside all day, because their inside enclosure is getting new ropes and a new climbing frames. Normally he can choose to go inside or stay outside when he wants. As they are all having a peek through the window and door, Oumbi is getting mad and lets his frustration out on his Son by pouncing on him. Lope is screaming his lungs out. Even though it sounds pretty scary, Lope was unharmed and it looked like it was more the shock that made him scream that loud rather than anything else. When Lope walks away, he just looks at his dad as to say: ‘WTF DAD? What was that all about, I didn’t do anything’ and then has a little bit of a sulk and keeps staring at dad. In the end they manage both to look through the window side by side, but the youngster is still cautious and moves out of the way when dad moves.
I hope you love this video as much as I do. It just makes me laugh how Lope the gorilla youngster is sliding down the hill backwards to get to his baby brother Shufai, but it’s well worth it, as he has some quality time with his brother. Just look at those two play. 🙂
Gorillas just want to have fun. Especially Lope. Look at him Belly flopping down the hill! Running around his enclosure, doing his little rolls and not forgetting giving grandma Bidi a cheeky slap on the backside.

Twycross zoo is building a great big new enclosure for the chimpanzees and the apes know there is something going on next door. Jambo the hairless chimpanzee is kicking the door and trying to look through the little space between the wall and door. The alpha male with his pouting lips shows everyone who the boss is.
The big gorilla is not having one of his best days. Oumbi is getting agitated by the fact that he can’t choose to go inside when he wants to, like he normally can. The reason for being locked out all day is that their inside enclosure is having a refit with new climbing frames and ropes. The family keeps looking through the windows to see what is going on inside. All that waiting doesn’t play well with Oumbi and he lets out his frustration on his family.
This is the first time I’ve seen the silverbaback this agitated, he’s always been a pretty calm gorilla, even when Lope his son teases him.
This is a compilation of clips of the gorilla youngster Lope that makes everyone laugh with his signature walk. He loves to walk just on his legs like a human.
