Bristol Zoo’s baby gorilla Kukeña celebrates his first birthday with mum Salome who pinched most of the tot’s celebratory brithday present. See SWNS story SWONE: Little Kukeña is still tiny – weighing around 7kg (approximately 15lbs) and standing at around 45cm tall – but he is getting more inquisitive and adventurous and has developed well over the past year. To mark the milestone birthday, the Zoo’s family of seven western lowland gorillas were given birthday presents full of their favourite healthy food and a slice of birthday fruit cake as a special treat. Assistant curator of mammals, Lynsey Bugg, said: “Kukeña has come a long way over the past 12 months, he is becoming a proper little adventurer and loves to sneak off to explore when mum isn’t looking.’
