The alternative reality show from Prague zoo - a live gorilla on your desktop?

Seasons Greetings

Just thought people here might enjoy this. It's Prague zoo's rather original way to raise money for gorillas in the wild - they call it an alternative to Big Brother. There are two live camera feeds from the gorilla enclosure here.

Whoops - as I post this the one I was watching has wandered off-screen. Well, you can't tell a gorilla what to do.

By the way, locals can vote for their favourite gorilla each week by sms - just like Big Brother. The final winning gorilla wins TWELVE MELONS - good eh? (the organisers claim that they asked the gorillas if they would rather have 'millions' or "melons' and they very sensibly decided on the fruit).
