These burly gorillas REALLY love their veg. The two Western lowland gorillas almost came to blows over a jacket potato at Paignton Zoo Environmental Park in Devon.
Silverback Pertinax – 33 years old and weighing-in at 172 kilos – and Kiondo, who is 13 and 186.5 kilos – beat their chests and bared their teeth as they displayed at each other during the squabble.
Paignton Zoo Curator of Mammals Neil Bemment said: “I don’t think they actually came to blows. They all have their favourite foods just like us, but Pertinax and Kiondo really love jacket potatoes. The keepers always scatter the food so that everyone gets their fair share, but on this occasion both boys obviously had their eye on the best one”.
