Gorilla City Discovered?
While we’re certainly not the only site comparing the recent discovery of a massive population of gorillas living in a secluded region of the jungle to the hidden "Gorilla City" of DC Comics, here’s hoping the word gets out to all the wanna-be Dian Fosseys out there: beware of any of ’em named "Grodd." That one is baaaaaad news.
Researchers said Tuesday they have found 125,000 Western lowland gorillas living in a swamp in northern Republic of Congo, a rare positive discovery that adds significantly to the existing population of the threatened species.
The last census of Western lowland gorillas, done in the 1980s, estimated 100,000 worldwide — and researchers thought the number had been cut in half since then.
Sure, it’s great news and all… but seriously, watch out for Grodd.
