The few-week-old gorilla girl from Berlin Zoo now has a name. "It was not easy, but we have now decided: The little gorilla is now called Tilla," Zoo and Zoo Director Andreas Knieriem announced in a press release on 10 March 2021.
More than 17,000 name suggestions for the gorilla girl born in February were received by the Berlin Zoo
. Among the ideas were the names "Frau Merkel", "Covi" and "Hope", it added. On the occasion of the naming, the other gorillas at the zoo were treated to a cake buffet with rice, raspberries, pomegranate, peppers and carrots. While mum Bibi (24) tucked in, the gorilla girl lay at mum's breast, as a video from the zoo shows. Tilla is the first gorilla offspring for the zoo in 16 years.
