A gorilla at the Fort Worth Zoo. Although I hate zoos, I could literally spend an entire day in the primate exhibit. How can you not be amazed at these animals? The little "island" this gorilla is on leads to an exterior part of the inclosure where there is a waterfall, things for the gorillas to play with, and plenty of grass. Inside, where this picture was taken, there are thick glass dividers that you can look through on either end (onto the exterior). Every time I've been (only twice) there is always an enormous silverback hanging out by the glass wall. To be that close to an animal like that can be humbling. To see how many similarities we share is so odd. And to have a giant silverback stare into your eyes can be intimidating as hell, but still make your draw drop in amazement.
This gorilla was pooping into it's right hand. Seconds later the poop was eaten. This, I wasn't so amazed with.
The big guy looking at me.
