    Fantastic…good looking guy…all the ladies must be chasing him around! Awesome portrait.

  • Thanks Jeffrae, this was the most flattering shot I got of him, I have a few others that may embarrass him, but if I post them, I hope he doesn’t catch wind of it, wouldn’t want to be on the wrong end of an angry gorilla!

    great close up….i wonder if that is the same gorilla that was there 20 years ago…love the conservatory and the beautiful carousel

  • Thanks, It’s possible that it’s the same one, but I know at least one died a few years back. The zoo is making great changes (see next comment)
