Khan was named for the owner of the Jacksonville Jaguars NFL team, Shahid Kahn. He was brought to Birmingham from the Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens in 2017. He is exhibited in the former gorilla enclosure at the zoo's Primate Building. The enclosure was renovated with a water feature for Khan's enjoyment. He was revealed to the public in late March.
