© Ancestor ..
Our Ancestor .. photographed in Granby’s Zoo.. 2008
From Montreal .. ( my daughter – spous and two Grand daughters live there) to the ZOO at a place called ‘Granby’ in Qubec Province..
its about 90 mins drive..
The ZOO I can recommend .. spacious and a lot to do/see.

Alas.. last Xmas my friends in Montreal told me this Ancestor passed away .. so a little survey on Google told me something I liked to hare with you :

Alas.. last Xmas my friends in Montreal told me this Ancestor passed away .. so a little survey on Google told me something I liked to hare with you :This is what I found out basicly and it all happened in October..
Mumba, the Granby Zoo’s silverback gorilla, is dead at the age of 48 – about 90 in human years.
The animal was found dead in cage Tuesday by one of his handlers. Mumba apparently died in his sleep of natural causes.
Mumba was one of the oldest and best known gorillas in captivity. According to the zoo, more than 20 million visitors saw him.

Mumba was one of the oldest and best known gorillas in captivity. According to the zoo, more than 20 million visitors saw him.Mumba was taken into captivity from a forest in Cameroon and was brought to Canada in 1961 when he was 15 months old.
Once here, he was raised by humans who bottle-fed him until the zoo built his shelter. Mumba was the oldest male of his species in captivity in North America.
He enjoyed listening to soft rock and jazz, and watching Scooby Doo cartoons on television.
He had been in poor health in recent years. In July, he was suffering from arthritis and the zoo was preparing for his death.
The average life expectancy of a gorilla is 40 years.

The average life expectancy of a gorilla is 40 years.Mumba leaves no descendants.
Attempts to mate him with three female gorillas failed. Naturalists suggest that was because he was raised by humans and bonded with them for the first two years of his life.
