Koga, a gorilla from Memphis Zoo, finds true love, starts family in Buffalo

Just in time for Valentine's Day, WGRZ TV-2 in Buffalo, N.Y., gives us a good old-fashioned love story from the Buffalo Zoo, starring three rather telegenic gorillas. It turns out the leading man, Koga, came from the Memphis Zoo, and Amari -- the baby gorilla of Koga and his mate, Sydney -- is a star in the making.

This is a story about love. This is a family. Koga, his lady, Sydney, and their baby, Amari.

This story started at the Memphis Zoo, where Koga was in an
all-bachelor group destined to be single forever, until he was sent to
the Buffalo Zoo and immediately fell for Sydney. There were no flowers
or chocolates or hand-holding. The only way zoo keepers knew of this
affection was the fact that Koga was willing to share his food with
Sydney.

Soon, their love brought them little baby Amari. An adorable 15-pound
baby girl gorilla. Amari just rides along on her mama's back. Turns out
Sydney is quite the mama. Koga takes a more hands-off approach.

Keep an eye on the family's doings at buffalozoo.org. Click here for the story of another Memphis Zoo-linked gorilla, silverback Timmy, who died last summer. Watch the WGRZ-TV 2 story below:
