This video was taken in September 2022.
Kintaro will be 4 years old this December.
He has also grown in size.
But many visitors who see Kintaro for the first time refer to him as a baby.
I think it’s because Kintaro is the smallest and cutest member of his family and he still gets hugged by Genki from time to time.
And to those who mistakenly believe that gorillas grow up faster, Kintaro seems to look younger than his age.
I’m looking forward to when Kintaro will no longer be called a baby.
