Utah's Hogle Zoo has a new big man on campus.
Husani, a 340-pound gorilla, made his official debut at the zoo on Thursday. Although he's large, zookeepers say the 18-year-old silverback has been a big teddy bear since arriving from a zoo in Alabama.
The western lowland gorilla shares his food with keepers and loves to people watch. His favorite activity seems to be wrapping a cardboard box around his body and carrying it around the enclosure.
Hogle ape keeper Bobbi Gordon says the zoo is trying to see if Husani can cohabitate with Tino, the 37-year-old male silverback gorilla already living there.
Gordon says it could take a month or even a few years to find out. So far, introductions have been made through a clear door.
