VIDEO VAULT: Columbus Zoo 1950s


UPDATED: Friday May 16, 2014 1:46 PM

This week the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium will be opening its Heart Of Africa Exhibit.

10TV went to the Video Vault to look back at the zoo with video from 1956 and 1957.

The silent video features images of Colo , the first gorilla in the world to be born in captivity. Now, Colo is the oldest living gorilla in captivity.

In fact, she has her life chronicled in a book called Colo’s Story: The Life of One Grand Gorilla by Columbus.
