Gorillas have always struck me as one of those animals that while not typically violent in temperament, is one of those that probably doesn't let anyone or anything mess with them. They just look "badass", to put it in everyday terms.
The interaction between this mother and her infant, was so incredibly humanlike, I was quite astounded as I had never seen anything quite like it in person.
Below are a couple of images from that day. Hope you get the opportunity to check out and learn about these magnificent animals at your local zoo, an animal sanctuary or if you get the opportunity to see them in the wild.
