If you happened to stay awake during science class, then you might know that humans are most closely related to apes than any other family of animals. Even knowing this evolutionary fact, scientists at the Kent wildlife park were still shocked to see this phenomenon.
You can explore the animal world any time of the year, with indoor and outdoor enclosures, interactive experiences and fun, exciting encounter with over five hundred animals, from over hundred different species. But as we all know, monkeys are the closest we can relate to people. Their intelligence happens to be on the top of the list right below people.
This guy happens to be quite the show man. He stands up and walk along as if he doesn’t care who is looking. His grand posture is definitely something to be admired.
Ambam, a 27-year-old silver back gorilla at Port Lympn Animal Park in Kent, UK, gained international fame when he was captured on video walking upright like a human. Park officials say that he has not been trained to do so and that he probably behaves this way so that he may have a better view of his carers or to be able to see where the food is being scattered in the enclosure.
What ever the reason, this is a unique sight of our glorious ancestor. Make sure to share the video with your friends.
