Hidden Population of Gorillas Discovered

Reported today in the Assoc. Press — Wildlife researchers were surprised to discovered the existence of a hidden population of 125,000 lowland gorillas in the Congo Republic. This is really good news for this endangered primate.

A few months back I posted a video I shot of two lowland gorillas, mother and child, wrestling at Brookfield Zoo. I think they are the same two pictured in today’s Chicago Tribune (above).
