Meet Koko, quite possibly the happiest gorilla in the world right now, because despite not being able to have kids she’s just become mother to two kittens. For her 44th birthday Koko was presented with a box of kittens and allowed to choose two of them, the remaining ones have all gone to different homes. Koko is famous for her knowledge of American Sign Language and signalled to zoo keepers that she would like a cat after not being happy with a toy one, a wish that came true.

Koko currently lives at the Gorilla Foundation in Redwood City, California and spends a lot of time with her trainer Francine Patterson. Patterson claims that Koko understands 2,000 english words and knows over 1,000 sign language signs in her own adapted form.

You can learn more about Koko and her story on her Facebook page and website.
