Silverback Gorilla

From 50ft away this guy pumped out a strong aroma! He is over 300 times stronger than a human. But he is also on 7 heart medications for a 33 year old gorilla. Seems zoos used to "fatten" them up for marketing 400lb Gorilla! Then they had heart attacks and died. So he is on a diet, but his heart already enlarged and now needs medication. He see a human cartiologist atleast once a year.
