Gorilla gorilla gorilla


Mature male (Silverback) Western Lowland gorilla, native to Africa.


Mainly forest but some found in more open woodland.


Photographed in La Vallée des Singes in Romagné, Vienne, France - a must to visit if you're ever in the region and love animals. You can wander freely amongst non-threatening species such as lemurs whilst gorillas etc live on islands divided by waterways inhabited by wild fowl. Animals are fed several times a day and wild birds throng the grounds after the scraps.

Thanks dandoucette. Their website just calls them gorillas. I did find a reference to gorilla g. g. in a 2009 blog, so I presume the others are the same.
