Men­ac­ing? No, this is my look of love!

Irish Daily Mail - - News - Daily Mail Reporter

AS a look of love, it could do with some work.

But de­spite his fright­en­ing ap­pear­ance, this go­rilla is ac­tu­ally gaz­ing at his mate and try­ing to smile.

Dom­i­nant male Richard lives at Prague Zoo, where he is known for be­ing a grumpy char­ac­ter.

How­ever it seems he has a softer side when it comes to his im­me­di­ate fam­ily.

Zoo pho­tog­ra­pher Petr Hamernik, who took this re­mark­able pic­ture, re­vealed how it came about: ‘Richard was watch­ing his fam­ily and smiled for his part­ner Shinda. Most of the time he is grumpy and shows dom­i­nance in the group.

‘So it was a mir­a­cle to see him smile. He is one of our stars, our vis­i­tors love him and his fam­ily.’
