      Gorillas in the new Campo Gorilla Reserve exhibit.

      Is this the Savannah subspecies of Gorilla I didn't know about or something?? ;)

      Actually the exhibit does look okay, but not really very rainforesty- I guess is the case in a lot of zoos.
      Thanks for posting.

      Yeah, it is a problem in lots of zoos, just look at London's new gorilla exhibit.

      According to the zoo's description of the exhibit, this part of the exhibit is supposed to be the grassy sunny areas that Lowland Gorillas are known for going to in the wild. I you look in the back there is a lot of vegitation, but like most zoos they don't let the gorillas actually touch the plants because they will destroy them. But the zoo does have many hidding places for the gorillas, theres even days that they don't even come to the front of the exhibit for like half of the day.

      A good exhibit, but where are the trees and bushes at?
    • mstickmanp
      They destroyed (mainly the silverback) all the bushes and some of the young trees that were at the front of the exhibit.
    There are no comments to display.
