Memphis Zoo Gets 2 New Gorillas from San Diego

MEMPHIS, TN - The Memphis Zoo has two new additions: a mother gorilla and her daughter on loan from the San Diego Zoo.

Zoo officials hope Penny and her daughter Kebara will acclimate a male gorilla, Mwelu, to the opposite sex.

Their primary job is to get Mwelu in the mood for a family.  Then zoo officials will bring in females from other zoos to mate.
