The name of the world’s first albino gorilla is Snowflake and it was captured in Africa in Equatorial Guinea
Snowflake spent its years in a Spanish zoo in Barcelona before he died in November 2003
The 2018 popular movie, Rampage, was inspired by the gorilla
The world’s first gorilla called Snowflake was captured in Rio Muni in Equitorial Guinea (it was called Spanish Guinea then) in October 1966.
After its capture, it was taken to and kept in a zoon in Barcelona, Spain. The animal, unfortunately, died in November 2003.
The gorilla was named Nfumu Ngui by the person who captured him before his keeper, Jordi Sabater Pi, renamed it Copito de nieve which translates as little snowflakes.
The animal was the inspiration behind the 2018 Hollywood blockbuster, Rampage.
