Gorilla Baby Snacking and Piggybacking
December 20, 2008
A troupe of young gorillas awaits visitors to the Artis Zoo in Amsterdam. Photographer A.J. Haverkamp has collected an impressive set of images showing Mom Dafina with her precious baby Dayo.
After a snack with Mom, baby Dayo gets ready for piggyback lessons...
"Dafina walked a couple of times around with Dayo on her back. He knows how to do it, he faced the right way all the time. Dafina could even signal him to climb a bit higher on her back. You can tell by the look on Dayo's face that he loves to be on that warm & soft back."
Dayo almost has the hang of it, but backwards is sometimes easier (and softer!)
