Ambam, the western lowland gorilla managed to become famous across the world, and it’s thanks to a nifty trick he’s learned.
The impressive silverback who is about to celebrate his 27th birthday caused quite a stir online after videos showing him walk up on two legs like a human surfaced online. At first, many people believed that the images were somehow technologically manipulated. In other words, they weren’t true.
However, staff members from the zoo where Ambam currently reside have stepped forward and confirmed that the video is 100% real. Still, no one was able to provide a clear explanation for how the gorilla managed to pick up on this unusual habit.
Most likely, Ambam learned it by observing humans. The gorilla spent more than 20 years in captivity, so he had plenty of time to look at people and see how they act. What’s most impressive is how he manages to balance and sit up straight for hours and hours in a row.
This is surely not something you see every day, so take a look and don’t forget to share what this gorilla can do with all of your friends and family online.
