Happy Birthday, Ozzie 
He’s the oldest living male gorilla in the world at 53, but he’d be special to us anyway! We celebrate the one-and-only Ozzie – father, grandfather, great-grandfather and beloved Zoo patriarch – on Father’s Day. Stop by to wish him well and watch him enjoy his birthday surprises.
