Found: 125,000 gorillas!

Where do 125,000 gorillas sleep? Anywhere they want to, but how do the stay hidden? Pretty interesting find.

Wildlife researchers said Tuesday that they've discovered 125,000 western lowland gorillas deep in the forests of the Republic of Congo, calling it a major increase in the animal's estimated population. - Researchers Discover 125,000 Gorillas in Congo Forests - Science News | Science & Technology | Technology News

Sooo - that's where they went after Warren Buffett gave his 1984 speech about the Super Investor's of Graham and Doddsville - eh!

Maybe he deliberately mislabeled them Orangutans to give them time to get out of Town?

Any word on whether they throw darts?
