Gorillas like Koko don"t tend to waste food (unless they"re not feeling well). This must make our produce coordinator and volunteers feel very appreciated; preparing large quantities of fresh food in creative and balanced arrangements and watching them disappear the same day.

It"s also interesting that (like humans) the "order" in which the gorillas eat the foods on their meal trays indicates their taste preferences - something we are beginning to track very carefully and correlate with nutritional content in a new USDA-based database being integrated with other databases at the Gorilla Foundation.
