Photo of the Day :Silverback Mountain Gorilla

A silverback gorilla takes a break from food hunting in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, about 550km (341 miles) west of Kampala, Uganda’s capital on October 14, 2011. There is an ongoing Gorilla Census in Bwindi National Park by the Uganda Wildlife Authority in cooperation with wildlife authority bodies from DR. Congo and Rwanda, two only other countries where Gorillas are found globally. The last census took place in 2006 which registered 302 gorillas. The endangered mountain gorillas are the largest of the great apes who share 97% of their biology with human beings. The world's remaining mountain gorillas live within four national parks, split in two regions that are 45 kilometers (28 miles) apart.
