Gorillas soon to be Blackbacks

Jamani carefully helps Bomassa down 

Here's Jamani very gingerly helping Bomassa to get down a few months ago.  This won't be happening for long, I shouldn't think.  Bomassa and his half-brother Apollo are getting pretty adept at getting around now. When I was there recently, he was grabbing that fur and climbing up her body so he could go for a ride.  Pretty soon he'll just be jumping off when he is ready to go. I  have missed seeing the boys for the past few weeks. Some days it's been too cold (they won't come out to play if it is not warm enough at the zoo). And there's been some travel and other issues.  I am ready to go back! Have to get out there before Apollo and Bomassa are already blackbacks!
