Gorilla Reunion




In the African jungle, conservationist Damian Aspinall searches for Kwibi, a lowland gorilla he hasn't seen for 5 years.   Kwibi grew up with Damian at his Howletts Wild Animal Park in England.  When he was five, he was released into the forests of Gabon, West Africa as part of a conservation programme to introduce gorillas back into the wild.  Now Kwibi's 10 years old, much bigger and stronger.   Will Kwibi attack him?


The video was specially created for YouTube from the TV series Gorilla School produced by Aqua Vita Films.




This amazing squirrel was able to complete this astonishingly difficult assault course in just a few weeks. Not only is this female clever, she is a brilliant athletic. From a film Bernard Walton made in 1991 called Daylight Robbery 2 (BBC) Music composed by Lalo Schifrin
