  • Cross River Gorillas Eating Figs

    Here is a link on National Geographic of the rarest of Gorilla subspecies eating what the narrator calls "figs" in Camaroon. He says the Gorillas are 30 to 40 feet up in the tree. Does anyone know what type of fig this would be?

    I would guess fiddle leaf fig or sycamore fig. Hard to say from the video. They grow in western Africa.

      It seems they are sycamore figs and a member on another forum has graciously sent the link to a video about them https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xy86...layer_embedded I encourage anyone to watch. Thanks
