gorillas

mountain gorillas are the most amazing living creatures I ve ever seen.they behave like human, with the small difference that they live peacefully in nature(without killing any other living creature, as they are vegetarians), and our race used to kill them , actually still kill them..., for useful purposes , like making out of their hands wonderful and unique ashtrays..........

aggressive look...

despite the appereances the gorillas are extremely friendly. it s amazing how influenced we are from medias and movies as usually the first image that comes to our mind when the word gorilla is mentioned is king kong.at the same time chimps look like the friendliest and cutest animals in the world, chita and tarzan and many cartoons, despite they are one of the most aggressive primate.

cleaning gorillas

"Dont blame the poachers, blame the doctors in Miami"(and their ashtrays made from Gorilla's hands..)
I love this quote from the movie based on the life of Diane Fossey, gorillas in the midst. People everywhere in the world must find a way to survive, values are different between different countries.A life of gorilla is very important but is more important the life of a human being.If the west keeps on buying rare animals o plants at incredible prices the only way to fight them is to make tourists pay more than collectors!
THEREFORE DO THE TOUR THE PRICE IS 375USD, VERY EXPENSIVE BUT VERY WORTH, AS A PERSONAL EXPERIENCE AND AS A WAY TO PRESERVE THESE ANIMALS!
