The Heart of the Beast
Eight Great Gorilla StoriesBook - 2007
Long ago, gorillas used to be considered scary beasts, but over the past several decades, research has proven these animals to be capable of communicating and experiencing a variety of human-like emotions. Through interviews with gorilla experts, zoo personnel, and baby gorilla "nannies", this book offers new insights about these amazing creatures. Readers will meet eight personalities-Colo, Koko, Snowflake, Willie B., Dotty, Mushavu, Bongo, and Bridgette-and learn key information to better understand gorillas.
