This is Chella. He is a western lowland gorilla. I met him in Cameroon whilst working at the Limbe Wildlife Centre. He was discovered in the back of a taxi when he was little, alongside the body of his dead mother and a stash of drugs. He was taken to the local police station where he was fed beer and little food. After 3 weeks he became malnorished and was brought to the Centre.

Look at him now – a huge dominant wonderful silverback…

    Chellal is one of of the most magnificent silverbacks I have ever met. At just 14 years old, he is still a young boy in gorilla terms, but wow is he impressive. He is turning out to be a wonderful alpha male. Love this shot Jane.

  • Thought you would Jul :) when we used to have our lunch we were next to the gorillas and he would come and sit by us and stare intently, just to see what was going on. How amazing to have your lunch next to such a wonderful being :)
