      I really like this shot.

      Boulas the silverback is 'playing' with the young male 'Gugas' who is now a silverback male. Sitting behind them is female 'Kamili' and walking in the corner is the old female 'Delilah'

      Boulas is very shortly to go to Twycross in the hope that the now mature 'Gugas'(a genetically valuable wildcaught male) will do some breeding.

      Do you mean Boulas is about to go to Twycross ? :D
    • Pertinax
      Yes, yes, Sorry I've changed it...:D Apparently BOULAS should be at Twycross this week. I really hope Gugas will breed after he's gone, though they may need a swap around of females to get something going again.

      Gugas is perhaps the last wildcaught Gorilla to enter captivity, at least in any Europe/American zoos, and possibly worldwide.
