Default Animal antics-Gorilla watching people

This is old but one of my vary favorites. I watched that gorilla take the red ball and roll it across the grass. Then he put it in front of the window and climbed up and sat down. He stayed there longer than we wanted to, just watching the people. It was a memorable sight. Hope you enjoy it.

Great shot! I just happened to see on the evening tv news a report and video of gorillas walking upright on their hind legs in two different locations in the US. I think these animals are much smarter than we give credit.

There's one at Sydney's Taronga Park Zoo as well as the one in Kent, UK.
