Deadly 60: Gorilla Country

Deadly 60: Gorilla Country
In the heart of Africa, Steve treks for miles in the Virunga Mountains of Uganda, where he finds a family of mountain gorillas — typically harmless vegetarians, but with their huge, muscular frames and lethal sense of loyalty, they'll defend their families to the death. On the way back to camp, Steve and the crew encounter a stern roadblock of fearsome olive baboons, and later get a little “present” thrown at them when they come too close to our closest relatives — chimpanzees.
