So London Zoo is getting a new male gorilla. There was a time when the gorilla at London Zoo was one of Britain's most famous residents. I think it went something like The Queen then Winston Churchill then Bobby Charlton and then Guy the Gorilla.



From Wikipedia...

His appearance was fearsome, yet his nature was very gentle; when small birds flew into his cage, he reportedly lifted them up on his hands and examined them softly.[1] This gentleness is said to have been a major part of his great popularity.
