go­rilla is­land

TV Times - - Interview -

al­though Kate loves be­ing with the new­borns, she al­ways has time for an old friend – nico the go­rilla.

‘He’s 56 and he is the old­est sur­viv­ing west­ern Low­land go­rilla in cap­tiv­ity in Europe – and pos­si­bly in the world,’ she says. ‘He’s a bit tem­per­a­men­tal and there are some peo­ple he just doesn’t like to have any­where near him. I feel lucky that he doesn’t mind me vis­it­ing him on Go­rilla Is­land.

He has his bed­time rou­tine: ribena fol­lowed by a yo­ghurt which con­tains his medicines. we scat­ter bits of fruit around, so he has stuff to do overnight, and we leave his telly on. He is just such a re­mark­able an­i­mal. It is al­ways a treat to go and see nico.’
