We are apes. So are they. We have moods, we have feelings. So do they. It's obvious. It's reflected in their eyes. Yet we keep them captive, for the “education” of our youngs. I wonder if they would do the same...

Stern Father Figure …
comment on Flickr … actually Jock is known as the gentle and caring paterfamilias of the Bristol Zoo Gardens Western Lowland gorilla family. He shows commendable patience with Hasani and Juni, his two youngest sons born in 2020. westernlowlandgorilla,jock,animals,apes,silverback,gorillagorillagorilla,portrait,xt4,uk,monochrome,bristol,clifton,collegeroad,bs8,bristolzoogardens,dscf6176,shotraw CC BY-NC-ND 2.0

We apes love our entertainment …

Bored Stiff …
comment on Flickr … Look into Jimmy’s eyes and ask yourself whether he – or any ape for that matter – belongs to a zoo, even as well intentioned and caring an institution as ZSL London Zoo. I try to convince myself that the facts he was born in captivity and Northern white cheek gibbons are almost wiped out in the wild matter… then I take another look at his face… xt4,monochrome,uk,nw1,london,camden,regent’spark,zsllondonzoo,animals,mammals,apes,gibbon,nomascusleukogenys,whitecheekgibbon,jimmy,img2082 CC BY-NC-ND 2.0
Concentration …
comment on Flickr … this guy is busy cleaning up a scratch from the top of his left forearm. Kept at it until satisfied, despite the horrible faces his younger ‘cousins’ were pulling on the other side of his window. He then turned his back and walked away in a most dignified way, completely ignoring his unruly audience. bokeh,shotraw,xt4,monochrome,anthropoïde,ape,animals,uk,bh20,dorset,wareham,touthill,monkeyworld,chimpanzé,chimp,pantroglodytes,chimpanzee,dscf2755 CC BY-NC-ND 2.0
