Silverback gorilla Kibabu, shown in this recent photo chewing on a stick at the Taronga Zoo in Sydney, will be sent to New Zealand to establish one of the first gorilla bachelor groups in the Australasi­an region. Kibabu and two of his male offspring — Fuzu and Fataki — are scheduled to leave Taronga in 2013 to form a bachelor group at Orana Wildlife Park in New Zealand. The move is said to be critical to the stability of Taronga’s world-renowned

Western Lowland gorilla group and mirrors the lifecycle of male gorillas in the wild.
