The post Pat was replying to clearly mentioned gorillas with sweat
running down their chests, and Pat replied that this was "saliva,
residual moisture in their fur". So he rather obviously *was* saying
that gorillas have fur on their chests. You just don't have very good
reading comprehension, do you?

Oh, by the way, you were going to post some stories "about lions,
cheetahs, leopards, tigers, hyenas or hunting dogs" killing more than a
thousand people in a single night. Remember? I do. And I'm waiting to
hear them (especially the one about cheetahs). I'll make it easy for
you: *your* creatures can be killing over a thousand *unarmed* people
instead of people armed with rifles.
