Bobo is a 24-year-old male gorilla who was rescued by the charity Ape Action Africa. He came to the organization's sanctuary in Cameroon as an infant back in 1994, after his mother was killed by poachers. Many years later, Bobo is a strong and formidable 450-pound beauty, and also the dominant male in his group.

During another morning check of the animals, one of the caregivers saw something unusual in the enclosure of Bobo's family...

According to the sanctuary staff, the galago could live in the gorillas' spacious enclosure. Soon Bobo's family got interested in his new friend, but the gentle giant kept the distance! He showed the monkey to the other gorillas, but the whole time he did not let the baby out of his hands, carefully holding him.
