I was just reading an article about Gorillas that are dying due to bad diet!
This is happening in American zoo’s!
At Cleveland Zoo the most common reason for the deaths of gorillas was – overweight and heart trouble. They have now seen the connection between the deaths and feeding the gorillas cakes and not their natural diet of veg. and greens!
When the zoo changed the diets back to natural foods for the gorillas they observed a mood change in the animals, they became moody. Due to sugar addiction!
When they were fed cakes the gorillas would throw up the food and eat it up again. This also disappeared when they changed their diet to natural gorilla food.
Gorillas are designed to eat: Plants, vegetables and fruit.
