Vulnerable

Titled "Vulnerable" not so much to reflect the critically endangered status of the gorilla, but to reflect this mighty silverback's apparently awareness as a visitor to the zoo mocked him, sticking his tongue out and making faces. The silverback kept glancing at me as if he knew I was on his side, and indeed, I did eventually tell the person off. I believe animals understand a lot more than most people realise.
