Warning: You might learn something.
Silverback Stories: The Lives and Times of Zoo Atlanta’s Most Eligible Bachelors, as told by Jodi Carrigan, Associate Curator of Primates
What’s 300 pounds, has a way with the ladies, and enjoys fresh kale? A male western lowland gorilla, of course. Home to one of the largest populations in North America, Zoo Atlanta has quite a few celebrities with the scientific name Gorilla gorilla gorilla, a name so nice you say it thrice! Sit back and relax as Jodi reminisces on some of the most famous leading men in Atlanta – Willie B., Ivan, Ozzie, and Taz. These boys may make you blush as she recounts their little black books. Hear what it’s really like to care for these special primates and learn more about how Zoo Atlanta has been so successful in their care and conservation efforts over the years.
Cost: $15 includes program and make-from-home cocktail recipe.
Ages 21 and up, please. Education and hilarity are meant to be enjoyed responsibly, even from home.
