Kimya’s name is Swahili for ‘quiet one’. These days however, Taronga Zoo’s youngest female gorilla, while still being very much a little girl, is definitely starting to become more confident and has been seen to jump on Mbeli’s back for a ride around! Her keepers think she is one of the prettiest Gorillas they have ever seen. Despite still being breastfed by mother Kriba, her favourite treats are mung beans.
