Very cute smile...


Snowflake - silverback WHITE gorilla - born in Africa in 1962 and now living in Barcelona, Spain. Also known as Copito de Nieve and Floquet de Neu, Snowflake is not an albino (or is he? See update below!). Although he has white hair, his eyes are blue, not pink. These photos were taken soon after one of his females had died, so his favorite female, Ndengue stayed nearby. Like many fair-skinned, blue eyed humans, Snowflake squints a lot in the bright sunlight and often people think he is grimacing or angry, which he is not. In fact, we were pleased to see how "normal" he behaved during our visit with him. Snowflake acted like a real gorilla’s gorilla and he’s sired over 20 babies, who have all turned out to be regular dark haired gorillas. Although most of his offspring did not survive, one now lives in Japan. Only one other white gorilla has been reported - seen in the wild as a baby with his/her mother, but s/he soon disappeared and was presumed dead.
Photos by Steuart Dewar, taken in October of 1996.
