Fatou is a gorilla residing at Berlin Zoo, Germany. Estimated to have been born in 1957 in the wild, she was brought from West Africa to France by a sailor in 1959, and then acquired by the Berlin Zoo. In 1974 she gave birth to the first gorilla to be raised in Berlin, Dufte. She celebrated her 61st birthday on April 13, 2018. Since the death of Colo in January 2017, she is the oldest living gorilla in the world (together with American gorilla Trudy). Fatou and Trudy are also the oldest ever confirmed gorillas.
