Menacing? No, this is my look of love!
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.’
