Bokito





Yesterday morning Erik emailed me that the gorilla Bokito in the Blijdorp Zoo in Rotterdam had escaped and had hurt a woman. Crazy! We had just visited this zoo on our last trip with Jordy (Erik's cousin) and his girlfriend Rene and when we saw this gorilla we talked about how horrible it would be if it escaped. This was after Bokito pounded on the glass so hard that it echoed in the room. I took some pictures of Bokito as well as his lady gorilla and their baby. The fourth picture is of the cutest little monkey sleeping.
