Rozi sits in my front basket and holds my camera lenses.
The Great Apes
At Toledo Zoo... besides the inside areas... there are two outside areas. One is a natural setting with grass and a few trees. Then there is an activity area with ropes to swing from, balls, boxes, baskets and other items. The families are switched ... one day in one area, the next day usually in the other area.
The youngest baby gorilla then followed along to play with the other lil' gorilla. Kwisha came through 3 times beating the window. Everyone would leave the window, the lil' ones would run to be cuddled by their moms.
The youngest continued to come to the window. Even... beating it's chest going up to daddy like it was big and bad... then returned to the window.
Gorilla Family Group #1 - Outside Enrichment Area.
Akbar is the oldest of the two males. Gorillas are very "family structured."
It would be something to be able to see the Gorillas in the wild to see how this family structure works compared to captive Gorillas.
Juba having fun!
The area at the Bronx zoo is one of the better habitat homes for Gorillas.
Out of 2 chimps... this is the only one that came to see Rozi... this chimp also kissed Rozi through the window.
FiFi holds tight to a aligator toy (headless now). When Fifi's friend died (another chimp that was housed at Toledo Zoo)... Fifi started to carry around this white toy gator.
MJ likes to look at storybooks... and look at herself in a mirror.
Gorilla Heaven is a nice website about apes. They even have a photo of Akbar there!
