Bronx Zoo: The Gorillas

Let me tell you how much I love going to the Bronx Zoo. I love it so much I signed up for their membership! It basically pays for itself after two trips, it’s so worth it. But anyway, I love to go there to see the animals and take pictures of them, especially the Bronx Zoo Gorillas.

My favorite parts are where all the primates are, so of course the Gorillas, the Madagascar exhibit, Jungle World, and the Baboons in the Africa area. I always make sure to see those spots every time I go.

These first two images are some of the best pictures I’ve ever taken of the gorillas. I haven’t been able to go there yet with my DSLR because of COVID-19, but once I do I’m sure I’ll get some even better ones. 

I could sit in that gorilla exhibit for hours and watch them. They’re such amazing creatures. You can really see the awareness and intelligence in their eyes. 

During one of my more recent ventures to the Bronx zoo, I saw some youngsters wrestling and play fighting with each other. It was so amazing to see them interacting.

One of the things that made these play fights hilarious is that they would start jumping at each other out of the blue and race around and just as suddenly, they would stop. It makes me wonder how they communicate so wordlessly.

Like when you give your significant other a look that says volumes and you understand each other instantly. I feel like it’s like that. 


In college, I doubled majored in English and Anthropology. A lot of my Anthropology classes were topics like Primate Behavior and Comparative Primate Anatomy. I just find our closest living relatives so fascinating.  

I was able to capture this amazing picture of a Bronx Zoo gorilla mother nursing her child. I admit, it’s not the best quality, but this was such an amazing moment for me to witness.   

And then I was able to capture funny pictures like this one. Look at the expression on her face and her posture. It makes me feel like she’s trying so hard to be casual and look innocent. 

Gorillas are really quite amazing creatures; they are one of my favorite animals. I hope to go to the Bronx Zoo again as soon as they reopen and take some photos with my new camera. Maybe there will be babies!
