This gorilla was interesting to watch as he strolled past the viewing area. He would take a few steps, and then pause (or pose). It was as if, he has learned that if he stops and holds still, he'll see flashes of light from cameras. He did this three or four times. He even turned his head towards the viewing area. What a ham he was, I couldn't help but like him. They have a very nice outdoor area to run, climb, tumble and play - and a nice air conditioned building to come into when the weather is bad, for feeding, and at bedtime.

Macho, macho man (gorilla)! That's a power pose if I ever saw one.

Hope I didn't give you the heebie jeebies with my watermelon photo the other day.

Big power. A few months ago a gorilla escaped in a dutch zoo and attacks a women. She still has a lot of pain after a long time in the hospital.

Hi Wendy,
I just wanted to say the same ,(Dick from NL named it above..) about a gorilla here in the ZOO 'ARTIS' in AMSTERDAM, named BOKITO, he jumped over the wall and grabbed a women very bad , she had to go into Hospital, with many wounds, a broken arm and leg etc, and this is a very Traumatic experience, the poor woman....

Great shot! But be carefull sweet 'sweet looking' animals !
