Artist's Description

This beautiful Western Lowland Gorilla is being coy and half-hiding from my lens! Taken at the Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle, Washington. The gorilla’s are by far my favorite characters to visit in the entire zoo.

The Western Lowland Gorilla is a subspecies of the Western Gorilla that lives in montane, primary, and secondary forests and lowland swamps in Angola, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Congo, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Equatorial Guinea and Gabon. Adult male Gorillas are prone to cardiomyopathy, a degenerative heart disease. Babec, a Western Lowland Gorilla on exhibit at the Birmingham Zoo in Birmingham, Alabama (USA) was the first gorilla to receive an artificial pacemaker. Binti Jua, who resides at Brookfield Zoo in Illinois, saved a three year old boy who fell into her enclosure in 2003.
The Western Lowland Gorilla is critically endangered. The gorilla is vulnerable to Ebola, deforestation, and poaching.
