Where to find the Gorilla Easter Egg in RDR2

Players must travel to West Elizabeth in Red Dead Redemption 2 and his small town of Strawberry first to find this gorilla. The Easter Egg is located northeast of the city and east of Mount Shamm. There are two roads that lead north of Strawberry but, because the two converge, taking one or the other of the works. Once on this path, players will encounter a short wooden bridge and come within range of the gorilla.

Once there, players should carefully walk to the area below the bridge. Once under the bridge, players will start to see debris along this dry riverbed. Resting against a large boulder is a broken open box that contains the stuffed gorilla. This is where gamers activated photo mode and captured that eerie selfie.

Where was the gorilla going?

While West Elizabeth retains a number of weird curiosities, players may wonder why a taxidermized gorilla ended up here. Well, that big cargo was on the main road to Strawberry but it’s unlikely to go live in town. Instead, just northeast of Strawberry is a place called Taxidermist House. It seems likely that this place filled to the brim with stuffed animals would be the best candidate to explain this discovery.

As to why this gorilla is currently sitting on a bridge and abandoned, well, he was probably pulled over just as he was approaching the bridge. There are a number of dangerous groups and people around the world of Red Dead Redemption 2 who could have attacked this cargo and forced it off deck. It is strange, however, that whoever spent the money to ship a gorilla to West Elizabeth of Africa did not attempt to retrieve it. For now, this remains one of the best selfie opportunities in the game.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is out now on PC, PS4, Stadia, and Xbox One.
