An eight-month-old western lowland gorilla ventures away from his troop while foraging for food in his exhibit at the San Diego Zoo yesterday, according to the caption the zoo sent with this photo.
“The baby, named Frank, joined his family in the Gorilla Tropics exhibit two months ago and is starting to show more of his natural instincts, including chest-beating,” the zoo continued.
Frank is is expected to grow to more than 400 pounds. He and his family are on exhibit every other day at the Zoo. Updates about Frank can be found on his Facebook page.
San Diego Zoo is home to 13 western lowland gorillas.
