A Western Lowland Gorilla from Omaha's Henry Doorly zoo is the newest animal in the Philadelphia Zoo.

He's a 28-year-old primate named Motumba, and he's on loan to the Philly Zoo. Zoo employees hope he'll mate with a 14-year-old female Western Lowland Gorilla named Kira as part of a species survival plan.

The Philly zoo is home to several other Western Lowland Gorillas, which are considered to be an endangered species.
