Gorilla gets hearing tests....

Zookeepers at the Jacksonville Zoo in Florida began to suspect Kumbuka, a 20-year-old Western Lowland gorilla, might be deaf after zookeepers had a hard time waking her up in the mornings. 

They decided to look into bringing Kumbuka in for a hearing test during her routine medical exams, when she would be put under anesthesia. Luckily, the Nemours Children's Health System was happy to take on the patient.
