phil the gorilla

this is phil, he lived at the st louis zoo from 1941 to 1958. he was one of the largest
gorilla on record, weighing a whooping 785 pounds. i remember seeing him
as a child and he was featured in life magazine. phil was stuffed after his death
and is still a big hit at the zoo. my grandkids would be the 4 generation to see phil.
the st louis zoo is free to see the animals, the children's zoo, train and the animal show
do charge admission. the zoo is 100 years old this year. the bird flight cage was
built for the 1904 world's fair and is still being used
