A viral video from a South Carolina zoo confirmed a bunch of gorillas behaving related to folks as they tried to take shelter from the rain.
The primates at the Riverbanks Zoo and Garden in Columbia have been seen huddling beneath an overhang. Each of two female gorillas clutched a baby in its arms as all of them cautiously regarded for an escape route to drier flooring.
“Gorillas are magnificent, majestic creatures full of grace and beauty… except when it rains,” zookeeper Brooke Hunsinger captioned the video on Facebook.
One brave gorilla, named Acacia, hugged the wall of the overhang in an effort to lower wetness and shimmied spherical a nook out of the rain. As the three remaining grim-faced gorillas adopted, each made a human-like face to current its revulsion to getting moist.
Some social media clients urged they ship the gorillas umbrellas.
The male dominant silverback gorilla, Cenzoo, waited for the females, Macy and Kazi, and their infants, Mo and ZaKota, to make it to the dry area sooner than leaving the overhang himself. The zoo replied that whereas there was a hierarchy among the many many females, “all bets were off for dominance” on this state of affairs on account of all the gorillas wanted to hold dry.
The video has been seen virtually 8 million cases since Hunsinger posted it on May 3.
