Cantsbee Silverback Gorilla turns 34 years old
One of the dominant Silverback Gorilla named Cantsbee of the Pablo group in Rwanda turned 34 years yesterday. He is one of the last living mountain Gorillas named by Dian Fossey and presides over the largest group of mountain gorillas that the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund International monitors.
At the age of 34 years, Cantsbee is still very strong and out competing his son Gicurasi who is the second ranking silverback in Pablo group for dominance. The fund hopes that since Cantsbee is still very strong, he pushes the record of the oldest mountain gorillas it monitors since the oldest male gorilla monitored by the fund died at the age of 35 and these were Pablo and Titus.
