Ozzie is the oldest living male gorilla in the world. This 350-pound silverback is a terrific father who has sired 12 gorillas at Zoo Atlanta. Ozzie dislikes loud music and he communicates with his keepers using “reply” vocalizations and a series of characteristic raps on doors or windows. His favorite foods are oranges and cabbage.
