Gorilla gorilla, Gorilla

Visiting Toronto Zoo during the Thanksgiving weekend was perhaps not the brightest idea I’ve ever had – the place was uncomfortably busy, with rather a preponderance of morons banging on the glass to try and get the animals to do something (what kind of idiot does that anyway?).

However, in amongst all this was the rather touching sight of a mother gorilla with her recently arrived baby; this was one of a few shots through the glass that came out okay.

I feel that scenes such as this do reinforce the notion that the great apes are people too.

(Incidentally, I was very well-behaved and resisted the urge to throttle people referring to these things as ‘monkeys’)
