Do Gorillas Feel Love?
And can a male with five female "sister wives" feel love? The New York Times sends Michael Wineriip to the Bronx Zoo to ask questions like this about their new gorilla troop that was assembled by AZA's Gorilla Species Survival Plan. They want to match up the Silverbacks with others that are mutually compatible so we see more babies come along. Or as Winerip puts it, "avoid the sort of inbreeding that helped bring down the Hapsburg Empire."
