I’VE GOT ONE NERVE LEFT … AND YOU’RE GETTING ON IT!

Gorilla

Haven’t you had days where you felt the way this gorilla looks? Perhaps he just checked the balance in his retirement portfolio.* Since he lives at the Columbus Zoo, his retirement is pretty secure. The Zoo is nationally known thanks to Jack Hanna. Years ago when Jack took over the Zoo, he totally turned it around. He now serves more as a celebrity spokesperson, appearing often on TV shows with his own brand of humor. If you haven’t been to the zoo for a number of years, you’re in for a surprise. Much work has been done to build environmental areas rather than having the animals in cages. For this photo, I was protected by strong glass. The marks on the glass indicate that he probably charges the window just to let us know that he’s the king.

Next to the Zoo is the Zoombezi Bay water park. The Zoo and the water park have a new entrance on Powell Rd, just east of Riverside Dr.(Rt 257).

(*Actually, he was watching a little boy who was making nasty faces at him. His eyes are very expressive, don’t you think?)
