In 1955, a young former Marine ventured to the Belgian Congo on a month-long adventure safari to view Africa’s diverse wildlife. When Arthur “Nick” Arundel boarded a commercial airliner for home, he had a gorilla in each arm, destined to live at the National Zoo in Washington, DC. Author Kara Arundel tracks his journey, and its consequences, to the present day National Zoo, which just made headlines for the birth of baby gorilla, Moke.
