Little Ihirwe, the mountain gorilla rescued from poachers in August of 2011, is approaching the age of 2, and is quite a rambunctious, and growing bolder by the day
The love for climbing trees is something that is inborn in the gorilla animals so some days ago Ihirwe the baby gorilla fell out of a tree and nearly knocked her two front teeth out. Luckily the vets from Mountain Gorilla Veterinary Project (MGVP) currently caring for her in Rwanda until she is moved to Virunga’s Senkwekwe Center.
Just a remainder of an incident when our orphan gorilla, Ndakasi, fell from a high tree in 2011 and emerged to have neurological damage for a while, and before that Ndeze fell from a tree causing pain in her arm and shoulder. Good news is, both gorillas are fine, alive and kicking.
