NBA great Shaquille O'Neal says gorillas are intimidated by him

A MARTINEZ, HOST:

In a recent episode of his podcast, Shaq revealed that any time he goes to a zoo, gorillas are intimidated by him. And to prove it, he called up Miami Zoo Communications Director Ron Magill during the show, who backed up his story. Now, I consider that proof that Shaq's not being braggadocious.
