Ndume"s "Volleyball" Serve


Posted On: March 12, 2010
Date Taken: March 31, 2005

Photographer: Ron Cohn

Ndume looks like he"s about to hurl that big orange rubber ball (obtained at a recent rummage sale) over the net to win another point. However, it"s more likely that he"s about to throw it directly at the photographer (Ron) on the other side of the mesh. You just never know when a gorilla"s in the mood for a photo op.

Now If Koko was in the yard with him, Ndume would probably redirect his aim and have a nice game of catch with her.
