Our First Month - Sydney and The Blue Mountains - Katie & Daniel Peckham Photo 42 of 96
Return to Album
This is the silverback of the zoo's troop of gorillas. Each troop tends to have only one silverback (male), and then several females and young. It's easy when you're looking at all the gorillas in the enclosure to think of them as males because they are so muscular and beefy-looking, but when this guy comes out there is absolutely no question who the male in the troop is!

He is terrifying in person.

Kind of looks like me waking up after a bad night. But he's got more black hair then I do.
