Mountain Gorilla

Mountain Gorilla_10

After several years of work, this gorilla was only ever able to prove that the love you take was less than or equal to the love you make, and only for the 23 of Harada and Norton’s 26 sporadic groups

This gorilla was not awarded his PhD.

I’m somewhat negative about my two trips to Africa last year. Lots of money, lots of time, and lots of effort to see some of the extremely small slices of the wild that remain out there.

Still, it was neat to see a wild colobus.

When we went to see the gorillas, they made us wait a while first. They claim that their trackers were figuring out where the gorillas had moved to during the night, but I think they were really just decorating all the leaves.

To create a clove hitch, make a loop around a nearby fish. Then make another loop and pass the free end under the second loop before tightening. You can also just create a loop in the free end and slide it over the fish, if the fish is moving slowly enough. Then make another loop the same as the first. Put the second loop over the fish (just above the first loop) and tighten the hitch.
