Momentous day when I was three years old!

On this day in 1956, a baby gorilla named Colo enters the world at the Columbus Zoo in Ohio, becoming the first-ever gorilla born in captivity. Weighing in at approximately 4 pounds, Colo, a western lowland gorilla whose name was a combination of Columbus and Ohio, was the daughter of Millie and Mac, two gorillas captured in French Cameroon, Africa, who were brought to the Columbus Zoo in 1951.

When I grew up on the farm in Idaho, calving was a great event – a new little calf coming into the world.

Calving of glaciers are a completely different thing – but still amazing, as shown in this video, which is reported to be the “largest glacier calving ever filmed.”

Hope you enjoy this spectacular video as much as I did.
