Ndume is always thrilled to open presents from supporters like you (see our Gorilla WishList for examples). Here he has just opened one that he obviously appreciates (what a guileful smile). Yes, gorilla facial expressions are very similar to ours. Unlike American Sign Language (which Koko and Michael were able to learn) it"s an intrinsic form of communication that we share.
