The Western Lowland Gorillas are the stars of the Bronx Zoo’s Congo Gorilla Forest. You can walk right through their habitat, separated only by heavy windows.
They really are wonderful to see. “So human-like!” Or, to put it less parochially, “We are so ape-like.” Several gorillas live in the Bronx Zoo; they are all named, and there are labeled photographs identifying who’s who.
Gorillas are also on exhibit at the Philadelphia view (below).
