A NEW student – a giant gorilla – has enrolled at Exeter university, but thankfully not a real one.
The striking piece of public art – named Takamanda, after a national park in the Cameroon that was set up in 2008 to help protect the endangered Cross River gorillas – is part of the Great Gorillas Project which is celebrating the 90th birthday of Paignton Zoo.
Life-size model gorillas have created a unique art trail around Exeter and the English Riviera.
