Some news on the Rare Cross River Gorilla. They belong to the same species as the Western Lowland Gorilla.

Thats a great find LW, and to see the Gorilla on video for the first time is fantastic. It's a species I was'nt aware about Thanks for letting us know

Thanks for posting that. I've never heard of them before, sad to see there are less than 300 left, no wonder they are vary of humans.

Must admit, it was a new one on me too but what a fantastic find and to be able to capture footage as well. I hope they are really left alone to be able to get on with life and hopefully breed as there are so few of them.
