Houston Zoo unveils new home for gorillas


On Thursday the Houston Zoo unveiled a model for an enclosure coming to the Bayou City in the next couple of years. The exhibit will be called "Gorillas of the African Forest."

The gorillas currently 'occupying' the area are cut-out stand-ins until the zoo is ready for the real beasts to arrive.

The exhibit is set to open in the spring of 2015.
