Gorillas and Opposable Toes
I love how the moms lounge around with their babies. They'll just stick a foot right up in the air and then reach up the arm, and hold hands with their own foot as seen here. And the babies will lie on the warm belly and stretch out, or work the neck muscles, or try to figure out how to employ their sweet little hands. Such is the after-meals routine of the gorilla mom and baby. Eat. Relax. What a life. Here we have a full view of Olympia and Apollo, while Jamani, who is nursing little Bomassa, has her back to the visitors.
