Koko loves zucchini, but isn?t particularly fond of the stems. In this photo, Koko has just finished lunch and is getting ready to expel the inedible part of her zuchinni. Typically, gorillas eat almost all parts of their fruits and vegetables so that there is usually nothing left except the seeds (which helps multiply edible plant growth in the wild)
