She only weighs 20 lbs now. She weighed less than lb. when born. Amahora loves to climb and sometimes seems awkward as she tumbles around. I tried to capture her inner-beauty and her sensitivity...much like my own children. My triplet sons played with the twin gorillas from The Columbus Zoo and Aquarium when they were both young. The gorillas were a year older than the triplets, so when Drew, Darin and Daniel weighed around 35 lbs when they were three...it almost matched. When we went back the following year the gorilla's weight had doubled and then on and on. They were playing with 10 wheeler truck tires and my kids eating snow cones. That was the end of romper room! The original was sold to help fund PIC. Partners in Conservation help to raise funds so that they can purchase supplies for the ten men who guard the mountains in Africa. They needed guns and a jeep.These men protect 400 or more mountain gorillas. We raised the money! Now, you can enjoy these miracles.
