They do look rather like men in gorilla suits, don't they? But not close up. Dear me no. Close up they're real x

oh dear mr Fry, rather like spitting image, when it was amazing how every politician looked so much like his spitting image counterpart, now gorillas look amazingly like there human counterparts, are we losing touch with reality? xx

Shame that all I can think about is 'in the air tonight' by Phil Collins. Bloody cadburys and their bizarre advertising techniques...

Amazing, but that would really scare the pants out of me. Lovely creatures though.

Great picture, a creature so perfectly adapted to it's habitat. Such a shame so much of these areas can be under threat.

S/he looks very wise! Like s/he's trying to get to the bottom of some particularly perplexing philosophy. You seem really close there! Loving the pics by the way, thank you xx

For some reason I have the urge to sit with him/her and discuss serious matters of great importance.

First thing that springs up to mind: Diane Fossey. Plus it reminds me of this beautiful film with Anthony Hopkins called Instinct. I love it ^^

They really do resemble humans, and in odd little ways aswell. Beautiful creatures. I saw you were in support for a Monkey Sanctuary back in the UK, it was lovely to discover while I was there. : ]
