There are so many different types of animals in this world and most of us can only name a handful of them. We have seen even fewer of them in person but, thanks to some zoos, we are able to see them face-to-face. Admittedly, some people have a difficulty with zoos because they feel the animals are being treated inhumanely but that isn’t always the case. Some zoos take very good care of the animals and they are there to help them, as well as to introduce the animals to the people who come to visit.
When was the last time you went to a zoo? What types of animals did you see? Visiting the animals and seeing them in real life is so much better than watching a random video online. That being said, there are going to be times when those videos show you something that you never would’ve seen. It is what you’re going to experience when you see this video of a silverback gorilla. This gorilla is perhaps the largest attraction at the zoo where he lives, and you’re about to see why.
The gorilla’s name is Ambam and he lives in Kent, England. His home is the Port Lympne Wild Animal Park and they take very good care of the animals that live within their walls. This silverback gorilla is not unusual as far as his breed is concerned but it is what he does that makes them so unique. He has a habit of walking upright on two legs, just like a man! That being said, he is also a 6-foot tall gorilla so it is something to see for yourself.
The scientists at the zoo don’t think that he learned this as a parlor trick. They feel that he learned how to walk on his 2 feet by watching the people walking that were nearby. He started to imitate the zookeepers and before anybody knew it, he was able to master it in an amazing way. You can see him doing it for yourself in this video:
