Barcelona, a photo a day

Big Boy!

A couple of weeks ago, I posted a picture of Snowflake, who was the only albino gorilla ever seen. Well, Snowflake died 6 years ago, but he had 35 kids (yet, thirty five). And they also had kids. None of them is white, but this grandson of his is an absolutely beautiful silverback. What a beauty!
I’m 6 foot 3, 1m87 tall. But that little guy, even though he was 15 meters away (and behind some strong glass), literally dwarfed me. You have to see him to get a measure of the incredible power emanating from him. I don’t know his name, unfortunately. Let’s call him Big Boy.

Yet another BIG picture!!!

  1. Wow. He's a magnificent creature!
    The cruise ship really was big and sounds luxurious too, but Big Boy here gets my vote!

  7. He's so gorgeous. He could be a model for the magazines. What a fantastic photograph, Rob. I'm sure even he would approve.
