Pele, a 12 year old western lowland gorilla living at Busch Gardens Tampa gave birth to a baby boy on December 16th. Busch Gardens then turned to Social media to help name the new addition. Fans were given three names to choose from:
1. Birungi, meaning “bringer of good things”
2. Bem, meaning “peace”
3. Enzi, meaning “power”
After more than 2,000 votes on a Facebook Poll, fans chose “Enzi” as the new gorilla’s name.
Enzi and his mother can be seen in the Myombe Reserve habitat at select times throughout the day.
