Gorillas have a pensive and curious look. It doesn’t seem like they would randonly attack unless provoked to anger or felt themselves in danger.
These are only my observations, and I’ll probably never find out from personal experience. The closest I’ll ever get is seeing them at a zoo, which I did last June at San Diego Safari Park.
When we reached the enclosure, gorillas, of various sizes, were eating frozen fruit treats. Just seeing their eating behavior told a lot about their temperaments, especially the largest gorilla covering his or her face with a tall leaf branch. Love the attitude!
Thank you City Sonnet for hosting this challenge!

Welcome to my blog! My name is Esther and I'm so happy you are here. I'm an avid nature photographer and a daydreaming thinker. My posts revolve around photos of nature's beauty, homeschooling adventures with my 2 kids, sporadic reflections on my child's heart condition, Bible reading reflections, gardening feats, and other mish mash things. Hopefully you'll leave encouraged, pensive, or smiling at the simple things of life. Thank you for stopping by and hope you'll find some interesting posts to read!
I wonder what those things are around the tree? Maybe deterrents to keep them from climbing that particular tree.

I had the same question too…they look so unnatural but it’s probably there for safety purposes: prevent the gorillas from climbing and jumping out of the enclosure?
Thanks for looking so closely!
