Gorilla: Matze (Version 2)

The chart shows famous silverback Matze with his wives and children.

 

Matze is on top, his wives in the middle row, and their children below. — As there was some space left I have added Matze's grandchildren Bobo and Bokito, both sons of late Derrick. Males marked in blue are silverbacks who now have their own families.

 

Color Key - Red: breeding females, black: alive, grey: deceased, blue: breeding males in other zoos.

 

This chart is based on the interactive online Gorilla Studbook by James R. Davis and the official International Studbook, published by Frankfurt Zoo. If you find a mistake, please let me know!

 

The Wikipedia article on Matze is here (in German).
