Meet a remarkable gorilla who paints while in captivity, and visit an innovative gorilla orphanage in West Africa. Traditionally, gorillas have been separated in sanitized cells for public safety and viewing. But with few successful gorilla births in captivity, zookeepers took a look at the outdated habitations—and then took action. They discovered that gorillas are group animals, which are unlikely to socialize or breed when isolated in pairs, and responded by developing zoo environments that closely resemble gorilla habitats in the wild. Far from the savage King Kong portrayed in Hollywood movies, you will discover that gorillas are gentle, noble individuals, each with a story to tell. Spanning three continents, The Urban Gorilla will forever change the way you see these magnificent creatures.

    Comments about The Urban Gorilla DVD-R:

    This DVD was part of my VHS collection and I was very glad to be able to add it to my DVD collection. "The "Urban Gorilla" gives us a view of this master primate that is not usually seen: different from the "in the wild" or "natural habitat" productions, this view is of the gorilla as it was presented to the curious public when most of us were ignorant of primate society and primate social needs. It is truly an eye-opener, both disturbing and uplifting, and is recommended for educational settings as well as family viewing.

From desirable traits like supersensitive hearing and smell to the unintended consequences of genetic diseases, learn how nature and man have partnered to deliberately create new and specialized versions of man's best friend.

National Geographic dissects the fascinating physiology of this living fossil, from its 24 clustered eyes down to the tips of its stinging tentacles, and examines how man's impact on the environment may be creating a growing invasion.
