Also known as Muzha Zoo, Taipei Zoo is a 165 hectare park located in Taipei City. It was founded in 1914 by a particular, but after World War II, the ownership of the park was passed to the Taipei city government and was moved to its current location in 1986 in need to expand their facilities. Their collection of animals displays animals from Africa, Asia and Australia, including also an amphibian and reptile house, insectarium, aviary and penguins. Other species to be mentioned are giant pandas, clouded leopards, zebra, elands, hippos, rhinos or patas monkey between many others. Their first gorilla was Pau Pau, a male that arrived in January 1987 from Africa. One year later, Taipei got an older male from Longleat called Jeppe, and, in 2016, another silverback called D'jeeco from Opole Zoo. Those are the only gorillas that lived at the park.

The enclosure for gorillas at Taipei Zoo has an outdoor prairie with grass as substratum and some trees and trunks. Gorillas are separated from visitors by a pit and people can see the animals through windows.
