#189 – We Have No Bananas Today

Photo taken: May 11, 2016

With so many different kinds of animals doing so many different things, you never know quite what you might see when you visit the critter prison known as your local zoo.  Of the many interesting interactions I got on my trip two years ago was this picture of a gorilla hauling around some cabbage (I think we settled on it being cabbage when I used this picture in my A to Z feature last year) in his mouth.  The look on his face says it all… he’s not particularly thrilled with the healthy menu at the zoo cafeteria.  Give this poor ape a banana already!

  1. no bananas today is that the other version of “no milk today” ?

  2. He looks like it is your fault he has a cabbage. and he is angry!

  3. All I hear in my head is 🎶 “No sir we have no bananas today!” 🎶 😂

  4. I dunno…lowland gorillas are vegetarians. He looks more disturbed at the invasion of privacy. Great shot-thanks for being a perfectly placed Peeping Tom!

  5. ody N biskit; we thinkz all catz will agreez…we wood knot wantz cabbage either !!! 🙂 ♥♥

  6. Whoever occupies the cave/cage/space NEXT to this big guy won’t be too happy about the cabbage either………. 🙂

    Maybe he likes cabbage and doesn’t want to share because then it would be gone. Someone might then offer him a banana and he doesn’t like bananas.

    He’d have to learn sign language to tell the zoo people no bananas. Cabbage.

    That’s why he looks mad. And then here you come along taking pics of him and his cabbage. You can’t have any!

  8. Looks more like a cabbage than a lettuce to me that’s for sure.

    Poor guy. That’s just wrong 😦

    • The zookeeper should be thankful it’s not the jungle, or he may find himself being thrown about the exhibit. Then again, had I gotten a picture of that, it would have been Top 10 material…

  10. I think they are very fond of nuts. Maybe peanuts? Walnuts? Pistachios? Something less green and crunchier. With a hint of salt.

    Poor Gorilla, I’m sure he’d prefer a mound of Termites or Ants than a stinking cabbage! 🍌🍌 maybe a side of fries too!🍟

    That’s probably similar to the face I make while picking cabbage out of my yakisoba. Poor gorilla. No wonder they always look angry, if that’s what they get fed!
