Caption: Western Lowland Gorilla (Gorilla gorilla gorilla), an herbivore native to Western Africa. Gorillas are the largest of the primates. They share 97-98% of their DNA sequences with humans. They are our next closest relative after the chimpanzee. This gorilla, exhibiting play behavior, was in the process of repeatedly throwing hay into the air onto herself. Congo exhibit at the Bronx Zoo, New York.
