Stunning! A Colony of 125,000 Lowland Gorillas Discovered In Africa


We're Still Here!!!!

That is two and a half times as many lowland gorillas that were believed to be in existence world wide; in a single , and until recently unknown colony!

Acting on a tip from hunters who indicated the presence of gorillas, researchers trekked on foot through mud for three days to the outskirts of Lac Tele, about 80 kilometers (50 miles) from the nearest road. "When we went there, we found an astonishing amount of gorillas," said Hugo Rainey, one of the researchers who conducted the survey for the U.S.-based Wildlife Conservation Society. Holy smokes! that is just unbelievable in this day and age. This is the kind of news that can make a grown man cry.
