Gorilla by Prof Phil Whitfield, Animal Planet


Gorilla by Prof Phil Whitfield, Animal Planet

From the earliest moments of being carried in its mothers arms, and riding on its mother's back, through horsing around with their fathers, getting into all kinds of mischief, and up through the moment they leave their mother's nest to build their own, this book traces the entire lifecycle of the fierce looking, but actually shy, friendly gorilla. Endnotes explain fascinating facts about the gorilla and a glossary builds scientific vocabulary
