A Little Bite of a Gorilla
Bomassa Gorilla of the North Carolina Zoo
hangs on to mother Jamani's back while the silverback saunters over and takes the better part of Bomassa's rump in his mouth. This apparently is one of the many ways Daddy Gorilla Nkosi shows affection for his sons. Olympia walks by in the background, and you can just barely see the head of Apollo as she holds him with her right arm.
