Last night I was chatting with a friend who was talking about going to the zoo for Thanksgiving next week. Then this evening another friend posted pictures from the best zoo in the country. This got me thinking about the Henry Doorly Zoo in Omaha since it is the best zoo in the country.
I decided to share some pictures from their Hubbard Gorilla Valley. The pictures were all taken during a visit there six years ago, and a few of them have been in previous posts.
Now for the real gorillas.
I previously used this picture in several posts including The One and Only Ivan.
The One and Only Ivan was the winner of the 2013 Newbery Medal.
I really like the expression on the face of this silverback. The picture was taken through a plexiglass bubble which made for some interesting distortions.
I used this picture in my post Omaha Gorillas. Click on the link to learn just a little more about their habitat and the gorilla research program at the Henry Doorly Zoo.
