This is Emma’s foot. She is a western lowland gorilla who I met in Cameroon. I looked after her for a while and she was wonderful.
THE WESTERN LOWLAND GORILLA
Cameroon is one of the few countries where coastal and lowland gorillas still exist. Growing up to six feet tall and weighing up to 210kg, they’re primarily vegetarian, much of their diet consists of plants like bamboo, wild celery and other leaves. Baby gorillas are especially vulnerable and can’t survive more than five days without their mother, which is why so few can be rescued. Gorillas are hunted for their meat and for their heads and hands
