Western Lowland Gorilla (Gorilla gorilla gorilla)

This is the silverback male at Chicago's Lincoln Park zoo's Regenstein Center for African Apes, a state of the art facility that accommodates chmpanzees and gorillas. The center is unlike any other in the country – maybe the world. Twenty-nine-thousand square feet of living space, indoors and out. Bamboo stands real and simulated. Dozens of trees and 5,000 feet of artificial vines for climbing. Skylights. Termite mounds for chimpanzee “fishing.” A waterfall. A moat. Heated logs. Fresh air. Sunshine.

 

This silverback poses everytime he sees a camera.
