UPDATE Oct 19th/2013: Changed the main file, because I had saved it in the wrong colour profile, so the colours were all desaturated and dull upon upload.

This is Kivu. I effing love Kivu :excited::woohoo::love::tighthug:
He is one of the two Western Lowland Gorillas in the Santa Barbara Zoo. He and Goma have a little bachelor pad going on there ha ha. I love visiting Kivu. He's so intelligent, knows he's being visited and tries to pose well, frequently making 'eye contact' (=looking directly at my lens.)

He was sitting in his cave for a while (that's when this photo was taken) and then wandered around so we could admire him. He also deliberately sat in front of the glass look-out-patio thing, so visitors could see him up close =) Isn't he kind?

Kivu was born August 18th, 1991. He is 5 ft 7 inches tall and weighs 450 lbs.

I wish I could dance with Kivu. :love:
