Much like legendary primatologist Dian Fossey, San Francisco 49ers tight end Delanie Walker has a special respect for the gorilla species.
Walker recently decided to pay tribute to the majestic beast by getting a special back tattoo with the face of a Silverback Gorilla in a jungle setting.
He posted an image of the ink via his Twitter account and judging from the size of the tattoo, it wasn’t done in just one sitting:
