Paignton Zoo's gorillas in the mist
GORILLAS in the mist were riding ferries in foggy Torbay yesterday.
Paignton Zoo launched its Great Gorillas Project to mark the zoo's 90th anniversary next year — and a host of life-size model gorillas will be painted up to create a unique art trail around the Bay.
Businesses and groups will be able to sponsor a gorilla and choose its colour scheme for artists.
Phil Knowling, from Paignton Zoo, said: "They are going to look amazing. They are life size and are three dimensional canvases which will all become individual works of art."
The launch saw a boat arrive at Princess Pier loaded with gorillas.
