Named after Hanno the Navigator, a Carthaginian explorer who first discovered the gorillas 2500 years ago. As Hanno, Hanno Jr. the gorilla is brave, strong and curious. His powerful hardwood frame can hold many poses, and his elastic-band muscles and durable wood limbs make him almost impervious to breakage. Hanno Jr. has received the Good Design prize, awarded by the Chicago Athenaeum and the European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies.
