If there is one thing that is true about the Internet, it’s the fact that they are crazy about animals. It doesn’t matter if it is people watching cat videos, reading about stray dogs being rescued or looking up information about wild animals, it is one of our favourite pastimes. That is why this silverback gorilla is no surprise when it comes to his popularity.
His name is Ambam and he lives with his family in Kent, England at the Port Lympne Wild Animal Park. As was mentioned, he is a silverback gorilla and that isn’t unusual in and of itself. What is unusual is the fact that he just so happens to walk upright on two legs, just like a man! Of course, he is a 6 foot, 34 stone gorilla, so there certainly is something to see.
Believe it or not, the zoo scientists believe that he learned how to walk without any help from others. He just started imitating the zookeepers and before you know it, he was a master at it. It is really a sight to see.
