'Does anyone know of any photographs available of Frank Bostock's gorilla? I have located two of his orangutangs, of which he apparently at one time exhibited both species as well as a gorilla. Interesting to note the gorilla keeper was offered a bonus if he could keep the gorilla alive for more then "a week, a fortnight, or a month." The keeper is noted as Cuban. Gargantua's keeper was also Cuban. Why did it appear Cuban's were "gorilla experts" years ago?
