HE’S TOO CUTE! I want one! Look at those eyes.
This is a photo by David Yarrow of one of the 13 baby gorillas born in 2011 as part of a breeding program in Central Africa’s Virunga Volcano Region. Good work, gorillas! Get your freak on!
I love gorillas! And gorillas always make me wonder how people can think you can’t be strong on a plant-based diet. Look at mountain gorillas! They eat a bunch of plants and they are hella strong! Yes, these giants are pretty much herbivores. They eat leaves, shoots, flowers, bark, roots and fruit. They also eat some bugs, it’s about 0.1 percent of their diet—so not a significant amount by any means. All that muscle feeds on plants!
