-Size: 12&½"L x 7&½"W x 9"H

-Species: Gorilla beringei

-Notes: This Mountain Gorilla (named Mbongo) was born in the high mountains of what was once the Belgium Congo and is now Zaire. He and another young gorilla named Ngagi were captured in 1930 by the famous explorers, Martin and Osa Johnson. The gorillas were brought to the United States, and every zoo that could afford to do so, put in a bid for the pair. San Diego benefactors Ellen Browning Scripps and Robert Scripps quickly supplied the funds, making Mbongo and Ngagi the first gorillas to be exhibited at the San Diego Zoo. 2-part skull (separate cranium & jaw).
