Fighting Gorillas

This picture is clearly not funny, but I’m posting it because I was stunned when I first saw it. Talk about the perfect timing for a picture to be taken. Throwdown at the zoo.

OK, it’s really a baby sloth. But you could have fooled me. From the article, “Eight-month-old baby sloth Camillo sticks out his tongue as he yawns at the zoo in Halle, eastern Germany.”

OK, I’m guessing there has to be at least 8 apples in his mouth. Anyone else have a good guess?

From the subtext:
“This orangutan at Moscow Zoo gets his five a day. Olga Dmitrieva, 51, of Moscow, has spent a lot of time photographing the apes and observing their play. Miss Dmitrieva, a martial arts teacher, said: ‘I enjoy photographing them because they have such human characteristics. A lot of the animals in the zoo are given apples and the orangutans have found different ways of playing them. Sometimes they use them like a ball, throwing them and catching them. One this occasion I found one of the orangutans with his mouth crammed full of fruit. He seemed to be doing it as a bit of fun and it made a funny shot.'”
