Josephine had been at Zoo Miami for nearly 33 years, after she was brought over from Africa in 1983 at the age of 16.
The 49-year-old suffered from a myriad number of health problems stemming from her old age, and on Wednesday morning, after she was unable to reach her morning treat, zookeepers made the decision to put her down.
In 1984, Josephine sired a male, Moja. Moja was moved to a zoo in Texas, where he gave birth to several sons, one of which, in 2016, would be killed by zookeepers in Cincinnati after a child fell into his enclosure.
You may remember his name.
