Ivan was a beloved Gorilla. He was cherished by countless numbers of our population. Many people cherished him and he cherished them. He cherished his family more than anything. Including his twin sister Tag. His sister died when they were both young. He was very depressed of his sister dying. He was so depressed of her sister dying that Ivan had this stuffed animal, and he named this stuffed animal Not-Tag. He named this stuffed toy after his twin sister tag. He put the Not in front of the Tag because he thought that nobody or no one could live up to his sister Tag. Nobody would ever be like her.
In summary, Ivan was finally placed in a exceptional habitat that he could live and breath better instead of living in a cage in a shopping mall in Lakewood, pierce county, for decades. He finally enjoys a bit of grass just after coming out into natural habitat at Atlanta Zoo that became his first home. After he finally got to live, and breath fresh air Ivan died.
