    Well, if the TeapubliKlan subspecies of elephant goes extinct, I, for one, will not mourn. As for the others, however…

    Gorillas aren’t herbivores like humans they are omnivores

    “Twelve voices were shouting in anger, and they were all alike. No question, now, what had happened to the faces of the pigs. The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig, and from pig to man again; but already it was impossible to say which was which.”

    Gorillas ARE herbivores. Chimps are omnivores. Guess which we’re closest related to, eh?

    They’re going extinct. The distinction of difference is without substance.

    I have a hard time even reading the news anymore. Just seeing a headline can sometimes evoke a sense of overwhelming despair. And anger.

    Sorry, herbivores, but we need your habitats to grow stuff. Wouldn’t you prefer nice, comfy zoos? Consider them compact Reservations.

    Actually, the thing that’s REALLY driving these animals to extinction isn’t legitimate hunting, it’s illegal POACHING

    Here’s a link I post every so often, the National Geographic article “Blood Ivory” from October, 2012:

    It’s nothing personal guys, it’s just your habitat is too profitable to left alone for you to survive. Corporate profit is more important. And yes, it is some form of corporate-style profit that drives all of the devastation, legal and illegal, poaching and mere habitat destruction. It all boils down to man’s greed. Because sometimes enough just isn’t enough.

    Yes. Like humans gorillas love a little red meat. Thus, this cartoon.

    Humans have become extinction generators. We kill whole ecosystems. The 6the Extinction is ongoing. Not since the end of the Permian and beginning of the Triassic has so many been killed off.

    From Wikipedia (to repeat Baslim’s point):
    “Gorillas are ground-dwelling, predominantly herbivorous apes that inhabit the forests of central Africa. The eponymous genus Gorilla is divided into two species: the eastern gorillas and the western gorillas, and either four or five subspecies. They are the largest living primates by physical size. The DNA of gorillas is highly similar to that of humans, from 95–99% depending on what is counted, and they are the next closest living relatives to humans after the chimpanzees and bonobos.”
