THE NAME OF THE WORLD’S FIRST ALBINO GORILLA IS SNOWFLAKE AND IT WAS CAPTURED IN AFRICA IN EQUATORIAL GUINEA. SNOWFLAKE SPENT HIS YEARS IN A SPANISH ZOO IN BARCELONA BEFORE HE DIED IN NOVEMBER 2003

The world’s first gorilla called Snowflake was captured in Rio Muni in Equitorial Guinea (it was called Spanish Guinea then) in October 1966.
After its capture, it was taken to and kept in a zoon in Barcelona, Spain. The animal, unfortunately, died in November 2003.

The gorilla was named Nfumu Ngui by the person who captured him before his keeper, Jordi Sabater Pi, renamed it Copito de nieve which translates as little snowflakes. The animal was the inspiration behind the 2018 Hollywood blockbuster, Rampage.

Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za earlier reported that an orangutan made a rare show of love when it tried to assist a man in a river by offering its outstretched arm to the man.
The animal thought the man was stuck in the river, not knowing that he was searching for snakes.

It was gathered that the ape lives in a protected conservation forest area in Borneo, while the man works for the Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation – a non-profit organisation aimed at protecting the endangered species.

The worker was clearing away snakes in an effort to guard the orangutans when one of the apes showed up.
Narrating what happened, Prabhakar said: “Someone told him there was a snake in the river. The warden went there and cleared the bushes.

“An orangutan came to the banks and was watching what he was doing. He then came closer and gave his hand.
“The warden just moved away. I asked him why later and he said: ‘It’s a wild animal, not one we are familiar with.’”
