    I confess I have be leaving the Bigfoot footprints. It is gorilla humor and humans thing they are the smartest.


    This is nothing to take litely, so far images of gorillas being masacred is an act of abominaiton. There is a place where they consider Gorillas as the other HUMANS. And they are respected as such. Yes the other Poeple. People who under Gods kingdom are intitled to there rights to exist and thrive. The other people are apes with all there splendor and Glory!! LONG LIVE THE APES AND YOU AND I!!
