Western Lowland Gorilla in Budapest Zoo, Hungary

This western lowland gorilla looks like he is modeling for the famous bronze sculpture called “The Thinker” by Auguste Rodin. This is the smallest of the gorilla subspecies yet still very big at 300 to 600 pounds. Although a native of Central Africa, there are over 500 in world zoos like this one in Budapest. The 26-acre Budapest Zoo and Botanical Gardens has about 5,000 animals from over 700 species.
