Gorilla was the first album by The Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band.

As mentioned previously on these boards, the word "flange" to mean a group of gorillas was actually invented for the Not the Nine O'Clock News show, but has actually since been used in serious programmes and books because of lazy research.

Gerald would be livid if he knew.

Invented, of course, by Mr John Lloyd of this parish - he talks about it at post 210677.

I take back what I said obviously Gerald is more closely related to humans than a bonobo. He reminds me about a strange character who drives a clapped out mini

If they taught people how to work with exotic dancers I'd be more interested.

Anywho, I have just discovered from the "Q.I Book of Animal Ignorance" that gorillas. go "woof woof".

Real gorillas are shy and peaceful creatures. They are herbivores, eating green plants, and bark.

OK, I admit it. I put the second comma in. It just amused me.

We watched the famous video of a young Sir Dave playing with wild Gorillas. They are such beautiful primates. And the wrestling between young males is so reminiscent of human males playing and competing.

If you are visiting a zoo take a mirror with you as Gorillas (and other primates) love looking at their reflection. It did not work with Meerkats as they got aggresive/agitated and then disappeared into their burrow.
