Phil the gorilla weighed 30 lbs. when he arrived at the St. Louis Zoo on Sept. 10, 1941, and for almost two decades, patrons flocked to his cage hoping to catch some of his antics. Sometimes he’d rip the shirt from his main keeper, Frank Florsek. Other times he’d suddenly bomb his human admirers with a mighty splash from his swimming tank. He died on Dec. 1, 1958, and his stuffed remains now reside at the old Elephant House.
