Gorilla gorilla

Number 0037

This gorilla is for Andres, who loves King Kong! For the most part, the difference between monkeys and apes is that monkeys have tails and apes, like the gorillas and us, don’t.

(If the title of this post, featuring the gorilla’s scientific name Gorilla gorilla, struck you as funny, you’ll like to know that there’s a subspecies—or maybe it’s a subtribe or subfamily—called Gorilla gorilla gorilla!)


  1. This is a great picture!

  2. Thank you, Brianne, more than five years late.
