Africa set world record as first Albino Gorilla found in Equatorial Guinea. The name of the world’s first albino gorilla is Snowflake and it was captured in Africa in Equatorial Guinea – Snowflake spent its years in a Spanish zoo in Barcelona before he died in November 2003.
Hollywood Blockbuster movie Rampage got the inspiration from the gorilla. The world’s first gorilla called Snowflake was captured in Rio Muni in Equitorial Guinea (it was called Spanish Guinea then) in October 1966. After its capture, it was taken to and kept in a zoo in Barcelona, Spain. The animal, unfortunately, died in November 2003.
The gorilla was named Nfumu Ngui by the person who captured him before his keeper, Jordi Sabater Pi, renamed it Copito de nieve which translates as little snowflakes. It was Snowflake that inspired the 2018 Hollywood blockbuster, Rampage.
