This is Benito. He is a western lowland gorilla and lives at the Limbe Wildlife Centre in Cameroon. He was very curious and was so close I couldn’t get all his face in the picture!
Born approx.: April 1996. The youngest of the three males, Benito arrived at Limbe with Emma (please see The Look and Gorilla Touch) and spent his first months there in the constant care of his human caregivers, who selflessly gave him 24 hour care and attention.
