Contest: Go Gorilla!

Gorillas and humans share 98% of their DNA. Now is your chance to show how similar our species really are!

First,  find an example of gorilla behavior online [see examples below]. Then,  submit a short video of you imitating some aspect of gorilla behavior-its walk, its sounds, facial expressions, and more. No costumes are required - in fact, they’re discouraged.
The Prize: An autographed copy of Seymour Simon’s new Gorillas book! Your video also gets posted on the SeymourScience Web site! In case of ties, more than one prize will be given.

Gorilla Behavior Videos

(And just to show you that the street runs both ways - below is a video of a gorilla imitating a human’s walk!)
