Description

This is my friend, Colossus, again! I believe he is the largest and one of the oldest lowland gorillas in captivity. The life expectancy for these guys is the mid 30's and Colossus is now 38! I'm always taken by his expressions and just wish I knew what he was thinking. (Applied gaussian blur and diffuser to soften.)
