Photos of the Day: May 3, 2013

Kumbuka, a 15-year-old western lowland gorilla, holds a green pepper as he explores his new enclosure in ZSL London Zoo on May 2, 2013 in London, England. The silverback male, who weights 185 kg and stands seven foot tall, moved from Paignton Zoo two weeks ago. It is hoped that Kumbuka will mate with the zoo's three female gorillas to increase numbers of the critically endangered species as part of the European breeding program.
