You have seen and probably been to so many birthday parties, but you’ve probably never seen a gorilla celebrate her birthday!
There was a fun party at Zoo Atlanta to celebrate their gorilla’s, Anaka, 6th birthday. To celebrate the occasion, the employees at the zoo clicked a couple of pics of the big girl and shared them on Facebook.
People sent their best wishes! But some people looked deeper into the picture to notice an interesting detail of the gorilla!
People noticed a unique patch of pigment on her hand. It was a pink patch that looked remarkably like a human. Interestingly, like all primates, they also have different fingerprints and toeprints, which sometimes may be used for identification purposes.
According to the zoo, it is not only Anaka’s skin is unique, but her personality is as well. “She’s often barking at her mom and others to get a prime spot for food and juice,” they wrote on their website. “She is often seen riding piggyback on her brother and sisters.”
Some people said, Anaka has vitiligo, a long-term skin condition identified by patches of the skin losing their pigment.
But Morena Lale explained that she wrote to the zoo about it and they didn’t confirm it, “I asked this question … and this is their reply: ‘Well, her skin pigment has always been like that and hasn’t changed over the years, so we think it’s just a cool birthmark.’”
Whatever the reason, it is a very unique and interesting thing about this special gorilla, Anaka!
