Gorilla’s Are Gentle Giants

Playful Giant at Howletts Wild Animal Park

You really need to have balls of steel to what Damian is doing here. This Silverback could easily rip him apart without even trying.

It’s estimated that an average highly trained (500 lb.) silverback gorilla might deadlift 1,800 lbs whereas the world’s strongest men might deadlift 900 lbs. An average man might deadlift 200 lbs.

But it shows how gentle our distant cousins can be.
