ASHEBORO, N.C. -- The young gorillas at the North Carolina Zoo keep visitors entertained.

Some younger gorillas like to knock on the glass, mess with each other and wrestle, while the adult gorillas are more lazy and enjoy relaxing in the sun.

About a year ago, the gorillas moved into a newly renovated exhibit, and zookeepers say the move has worked out well.

"Seven is probably the most we've had here at the North Carolina Zoo," one zookeeper said. "With gorillas, you are going to have some spats here and there but that his job [the SilverBack gorilla leader]... and he's done an excellent job."
