After almost a 10 year absence, eastern lowland gorillas will make their return to Houston.

The Houston Zoo has unveiled a model for a gorilla enclosure coming to the bayou city in the next few years.

The Gorillas of the African Forest will initially house four to six of the rare gorillas. The last gorilla at the Houston Zoo died in 2004 of old age.

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