Tuskerman Transmissions #02


I learned today, that the Silverback male Gorilla will emit a strong body odour from his armpits when he is either threatened or excited, and to also notify other gorillas of his location.

Of the 98.67% genetic similarities we share with this gentle giant, it figures that armpit odour had to be somewhere on the list...

So if you are ever fortunate enough to encounter one of our closest cousins in the wild, don't bring deodorant...
