A Gentle Giant
It was fascinating to watch this gentle lady willingly come and meet her public! Lots of noisy and excited children screaming and yelling - normally our gorillas are very sensitive, and shy away from noise.
THis indeed happened on Sunday morning - one of the senior females decided enough was enough and urned her back on the noise.
Rigo, the male Silverback will remove himself from display.
This lady came right out into the open and stayed for perhaps 15 minutes.
