    Wild Gorillas Mate Face to Face. Evolution in Action?

    The force is strong in princess Leah. :fcuddle:
    Bonaboand mountain gorilla's do it and now a lowland gorilla.

    A pair of wild western lowland gorillas in Africa have surprised researchers by engaging in face-to-face mating, the Wildlife Conservation Society announced today.

    Though the behavior had been observed before in mountain gorillas, it had never before been seen in the lowland gorilla subspecies—and had never before been photographed in the wild.

    Perhaps just as surprising, the female in the photographs—Leah, named after the Star Wars princess—is also the first gorilla seen using a tool in the wild.

    Conservation biologist Thomas Breuer took the mating photographs in 2005, but the images are only now being released to the public.

    Breuer, of Germany's Max Planck Institute and the New York-based Wildlife Conservation Society, never expected to observe such a sight.

    "Seeing the similarity between humans and gorillas in this respect is fascinating," he said.

    Haha, the primates are evolving, while we are de-evolving. Nature's true ironyeyes:


    And as an important reminder, brought to you from the endless universe of Star Wars-nerds all over the world(s): The princess' name is Leia!!
    If you are to name someone after her, get it right! :

    Grin A Classic case of mistaken identity!

    They clearly mistook 2 africans for gorillas. The two are indistinguishable to the untrained eye as the gorillas are only slightly better looking, they smell a bit more pleasant but has a lot more integrity.
