People can choose from one of four names for the one-month old male gorilla — Ringo, Jabali, Kwanza, and Mapenzi – which were put forward by organizations involved in Taipei Zoo's gorilla conservation program, according to the zoo.
The Polish Office in Taipei, which helped to bring Diego, the father of the infant, to Taiwan in 2016, proposed the name Ringo, after a sports game in Poland.
Mapenzi, meanwhile, was put forward by the Apenheul Primate Park in the Netherlands, which sent the mother Tayari and another female gorilla to Taipei Zoo in 2019, in exchange for a male called Bao Bao. [FULL STORY]
