Heard on NPR today that the oldest gorilla in captivity died yesterday.

The part that made me glad to not be a gorilla was that they said the gorilla was born in 1957 and was 55 years old...

Wow, that's the same year as me , but WTF? I'm NOT 55! (yet)

Ok a google showed me that NPR muffed their facts (or I'm old and heard it wrong, take your pick).

Jenny the gorilla came to the Dallas Zoo in 1957 and was 55 years old, obviously she was a few years old when she got to the zoo.

Still, glad I'm not a gorilla.

but the last chimp to play Cheetah is 75 years old and apparantly still going strong, so the starlets say.
