WICHITA, Kan. (KNSS) — The first two Gorillas of the Sedgwick county zoo will be heading to the Miami Zoo after 13 years in Wichita.

Shango who is 28 and his primate brother 23 year old Barney arrived at the Sedgwick County Zoo in 2004. They will be off to Miami next Friday. 

The relocation of Shango & Barney will give the zoo more space for it's growing population of gorillas that now number nine.
