Dallas Zoo Pays Tribute to Endangered Silverback Gorilla on Father's Day

Dallas Zoo marked Father’s Day by sharing footage of silverback gorilla Subira, who it said was “the most gentle, loving and protective father to Saambili and Mbani.”The gorilla became a father for the second time in March when Megan, a 13-year-old critically endangered Western lowland gorilla, gave birth to Mbani.The baby gorilla was the second born at the zoo in 21 years, after another gorilla named Hope gave birth to Saambili in 2018.The zoo released the footage on June 16 and said it was filmed on June 8.
