There is a world somewhere between reality and fiction. Although ignored by many, it is very real and so are those living in it. This forum is about the natural world. Here, wild animals will be heard and respected. The forum offers a glimpse into an unknown world as well as a room with a view on the present and the future. Anyone able to speak on behalf of those living in the emerald forest and the deep blue sea is invited to join.

Leopards shoulder passes under it while the Gorillas hip passes over it.

Why would you use the leopard's shoulder and the gorilla's hip? This means the gorilla is closer to the camera and therefore appears larger than the leopard than it is in reality. If you want to compare, at least show them at (almost) the same place:

Regarding the gorilla's size; I believe this is a western lowland gorilla, there's a figure given for their height upright (167cm up to 180cm) but not on all fours. Still, you're looking at a gorilla that averages 140kg with the largest weighing 270kg. Plus it's a silverback. We're very clearly looking at two dominant males.

If you want more footage to figure out how big this male leopard really is; there's footage of chimps, a red river hog, a yellow-backed duiker and elephants including a calf. All at the same spot.

Terrible comparisons. I regret sharing the original source of the video... But I made one more comparison, specially for you because I don't want you to think I have a hidden agenda:

What are you talking about? They're clearly standing at the same place more or less and the distance between the animals and the camera are the same. I suggest you look up what a baby chimp looks like. Worst case scenario that's a juvenile chimpanzee but it could be an adult female as well. For a baby it looks pretty independent.
