Both are having fun, when suddenly Oumbi the Silverback gorilla, their dad, runs over to Asante the aunt of the two that is sitting in the back corner. Both the brothers are watching Oumbi and don't realize gran Biddi coming from the right. She is that quick that no one sees her coming. Shufai the baby gorilla managed to get out of the way just before gran makes her move, but Lope wasn’t that lucky and totally bulldozes him. Just watch the five year olds face! He is completely stunned at what just happened. It still makes me laugh every time I watch that bit. Lope is getting up, all bewildered, thinking wtf just happened? It takes a few seconds until Lope gathers himself again and then just walks over to the plank to have a quick rest with his feet dangling down. He is probably contemplating his next move. He then continues his play with little Shufai. Lope then walks over to his little brother and continues his play with him. Oumbi is sitting their watching the two before he moves, but not without a little back kick towards Lope. The gorilla family at Twycross consists of 6 members.

Hairless Chimpanzee Gets Thorough Dental Check From Friend52s

Hairless Chimpanzee Gets Thorough Dental Check From Friend

Chimpanzees are our closest living relatives, sharing more than 98 percent of our genetic blueprint. Humans and chimps are also thought to share a common ancestor who lived some four to eight million years ago. Although they normally walk on all fours (knuckle-walking), chimpanzees can stand and walk upright. By swinging from branch to branch they can also move quite efficiently in the trees, where they do most of their eating. Chimpanzees usually sleep in the trees as well, employing nests of leaves. In this video, Jambo the hairless chimpanzee is getting a thorough dental check by his mate. She is really trying to get all the little bits out of his teeth poking and prodding, while Jambo holds very still and lets her get on with the job. Because nothing looks better than cleaned, shiny teeth, even for chimps. Of course chimps care about the monkey business thing, especially if there is somebody around them to watch what they do and be left in awe. Apes will never cease to surprise us with their incredibly clownish behavior. And they thoroughly enjoy the role of being a jesters on the “court” called a zoo. Jambo’s friend makes sure to give him a detailed dental check-up by using her hands as a dental floss and a toothbrush in order to be able to pluck out every tiny little piece of leftover food that got stuck between his teeth. She also wants to make sure that all parts of the hard and soft palate are being equally flossed. And just look how Jambo follows suite. Neither once does he complain or jerks his head in displeasure. We know that primates love when somebody pats and taps their bodies and they can go on reaping the full benefits of that for hours and hours. So, when Jambo’s mate meticulously finishes cleaning the soft palate, she doesn’t forget to go on cleaning the hard one. Chimpanzees are lively animals with more extroverted dispositions than either gorillas or orangutans. They are highly social and live in loose and flexible groups known as communities, or unit groups. Social dominance exists, with adult males being dominant over adult females and adolescent males. Within a community, there are twice or three times as many adult females as adult males. The dominant (alpha) male of a group can monopolize ovulating females through possessive behavior. On the other hand, gang attack by subordinate males can expel an alpha male.

Gorilla Youngster Cures Sweet Tooth Feasting On Giant Popsicle

A heartwarming video has emerged of a gorilla youngster feasting on a giant piece of popsicle. The weather is heating up and the Lope is after some cold flavored fruit ice, in this case a huge popsicle that is hanging from the climbing frame in his habitat. Yum! Lope the gorilla from the Twycross Zoo in Atherstone, England is having so much fun on a daily basis. He enjoys playing in the hay, throwing it all over himself, wiggling about. He likes playing hide and seek with the other members of his tribe, but most of all he appreciates good food. Just look at him munching on a giant piece of popsicle with delight! Lope knows how to make everybody smile! Who would have thought that gorillas can be hooked on goodies and declare popsicle as their favorite snack. It is not that surprising given this cool treat is scrumptious, smooth and makes everything much better. The great thing about ice cream popsicle is that we can eat it every season since it cools us down in the summer heat, but also makes the winter cold much more bearable! In this hilarious footage, we see a youngster gorilla feasting on a big chunk of fruit popsicle hanging in its enclosure. Lope the gorilla youngster is full of energy, and he isn’t afraid to show it. However, today was different because he decided to slow down and enjoy the hanging popsicle snack in peace. Watch how he feasts on the cooling treat with delight! Wonderful!

Silverback Gorilla Exercises Dominance But Slips And Embarrasses Himself 47s

Silverback Gorilla Exercises Dominance But Slips And Embarrasses Himself

A hilarious footage has emerged of an over-confident male gorilla exercising dominance in his zoo enclosure. However, his heroic act was tainted with an epic slip up. Who would have known that even a silverback gorilla can slip up? He slipped so much that he did the splits! Adorable! Imagine going to the ZOO to visit all those exotic animals, only to have a 375 pound male gorilla lunge at you in his enclosure! In this clip, we see a massive silverback male showing visitors and other gorillas in his enclosure that he is the alpha! Glass or not, watching a gorilla charge at you only to pound on its chests, is definitely a scary experience! In this video, we are fazed by what the huge mammal is trying to achieve, but eventually, karma takes things in her own hands. This is typical behavior, it is just what male gorillas do. They just exude that dominance and they want to show that any way they can, while making a lot of noise and fuss about it. The pounding of chests and the angry charging, makes gorillas seem pretty scary to be around! In this compilation of several footages, we see a male silverback gorilla exercising dominance in a zoo enclosure. In the first footage we see a male gorilla pounding his chests, showing the others who’s in charge. Next, he charges straight down the grass with such incredible force, but slips in the process. What an embarrassment for such alpha male, we’re sure! Next time, we hope he learns how to hold his horses, and exercise his dominance elsewhere! We have seen male gorillas in action many times and we know their dominant behavior. If you haven’t stumbled upon harsh gorilla dominance, make sure you stick around for a moment to witness the action as a self-confident male beats his chests for attention. It's all for recognition! The hierarchical organization is typical for many species of gorilla; the only question is what this hierarchy is like. We can say that hierarchically structured teams of gorillas can be of fundamentally dissimilar. First, these are structures with egalitarian dominance. This means that the team has a leader and subordinates. But subordinates have enough freedom of choice, freedom of action in relations with each other and even in relations with the leader. Secondly, it is a rigid despotic structure, like you can clearly see in the video on the top of the page, under which a linear vertical is built, and each higher rank dictates all of its requirements to the lower one. And the inferiors are deprived of the right to vote. Each type of gorilla has its own structure of the collective. Of course, within each species at the population level, there are variations, but, in principle, each structure has a constant structure. The social structures in gorillas are sufficiently well defined and outlined, the rules of behavior are defined within the limits of these structures by species-specific opportunities. What dо you think about this video? Make sure you tell us more in the comments down below. If you like what you see, don’t forget to share it with others who might like it as well. It just might be the highlight of their day! Enjoy!

Hairless Chimpanzee Shares Emotional Moment With His Soulmate1m06s

Hairless Chimpanzee Shares Emotional Moment With His Soulmate

This is the emotional moment when two hairless chimpanzees share their love and affection for each other. Watch as they act like lovers do in a way you would never expect it! Adorable! Jambo from the Twycross Zoo in England is completely relaxed in his new enclosure called Eden. He seems totally in love and besotted with his female mate. He is caressing her foot gently, while she is playing hard to get and keeps pulling away. Just like humans, you can see her later putting her hands around his neck in a loving gesture. Then she starts to kiss his bald head gently. The next bit is just amazing as Jambo pulls away and stretches out his lips towards her. She then gently bites his lips and pulls on it. She continues to investigate his teeth for a few seconds before biting his lip again. He then continues with a French kiss, sticking out his tongue. He even closes his eyes for a second to enjoy the intimate moment! Afterwards he gently bites her brows. You can easily see how animal love doesn't differ much from our own. Even an alpha male, that shows everybody who the boss is by intimidating the opponent with lots of noise and bluster, that he can be also very gentle. An amazing animal couple. And for Jambo it shows that being a bit different doesn't stop you from doing anything, from becoming the boss to a gentle lover. The question on your mind is, why is Jambo hairless? People also call him the 'naked chimp'. Some people think they shaved him or that he is ill. The truth is, the ape has Alopecia, a medical term for hair loss and he had it since adolescence. He is now 35 years old and with his hair gone you can simply see how powerfully muscular he is. Being a hairless chimpanzee hasn't stopped him from anything, rather the opposite as he's the alpha male and rules his habitat!

First, he starts with biting his mom in the buttock and he knows that what he does is something that his mom hates. Nevertheless, he still does it, because every game starts with a ritual. Since his mom is not interested in his crazy game, he goes away and finds a hanging ball with water inside. Why not refresh himself on a such a hot day? Water boosts his energy levels so he can keep on showing visitors what a funny monkey he is!

Lope is a 4-year-old western lowland gorilla, a species that is labeled as critical on the IUCN list. He is the the second child of 22-year-old mother Ozala and 24-year-old dad Oumbi. The 4-year-old rascal can be seen running around their enclosure in Twycross, just like a human baby would, teasing his grandmother, engaging in play mode. It is an important aspect of a gorilla youngers’ behavior, but he needs to learn about the hierarchy in the troop. These rare primates are usually found in dense rainforests and swamps in Central Africa, but their populations in the wild have declined by more than 60% in the past two decades. Western lowland gorillas have been pushed to the brink of extinction by humans clearing their forests for timber, oil and gas, as well as poaching the animals for bushmeat and the illegal pet trade.

Athletic Ape Shows Off Back-Flip Skills54s

Athletic Ape Shows Off Back-Flip Skills

The weather is finally getting better as it is warming up and the animals at the zoo are getting lively. Take a glimpse at this Bonobo ape for instance and how he is showing his cheerfulness by his acrobatics around the enclosure. First, he happily rolls around and stretches and scratches in the sun, taking short breaks before the real flip. When he gets a bit boring, he decides to roll up to a wooden pole in the ground. With four continuous back-flips, off he climbs on the wooden pole that has a tire around at the bottom. Having climbed on top of it, with one scratch on his back as a prelude to the upcoming unbelievable maneuver, he executes a perfect 360 back-flip. Apparently, the monkey is totally unaware of his breath-taking back-flip as he nonchalantly drops on the ground lying idly on the grass. Since his acrobatic movement leaves us awe-stricken, it is repeated in a slow motion manner in order for us to take another glimpse at the monkey’s amazing flip. As we can see, animals can do back-flips even better than us, humans. And wild animals like monkeys are not actually trained to do these back-flips. Bonobo doesn’t wait to catch his breath and he goes on doing a few more back-flips in the air, rolling in circles on the grass and getting all covered with it. This monkey is incredibly agile and the video is filled with his marvelous jumping actions. It is always fun to watch animal’s movements and their crazy acrobatic skills.

One roll after another, covering himself in the wood shavings. He is a ground-dweller and has a peculiar way of walking. Since walking for this gorilla is overrated, and jumping and hanging on trees is just boring, he decides to show his other apparently more adventurous side of throwing himself to the ground into an oblivious spin. Shufai will leave his four-footed walk called chuckle-walking for later, when he is not recorded on camera. His average travel takes about 0.3 to 0.6 miles per day but this baby gorilla will certainly make more by tossing around the cage.

Fresh Snow Was The Perfect Refreshment For These Gorillas1m26s

Fresh Snow Was The Perfect Refreshment For These Gorillas

Way back when we were younger, we loved eating the fresh snow. It looked exactly like the snow cones our parents used to get us at fairs in the summer, only snow was tasteless (unless you count the occasional spect of dirt that came along with it). Also, “don’t eat the yellow snow” became a staple throughout our adult lives, although we probably had no idea what it meant back then. When snow fell in Twycross, Leicestershire, England these past week, the Silverback gorillas went out to have their own taste of the white stuff. Just like any human would, they would gather up the snow in ball and munch on it. Mmm, refreshing! The Gorilla Family from the Twycross Zoo in England woke up this morning to freezing weather and some snow. Even though the family doesn't like to stay outside in the cold, they do love to eat snowballs! Oumbi the big Silverback gorilla was the first to go outside to get himself some white stuff. He did his tightrope walk to the other side of the platform where he gathered the fresh snow together and ended up with a huge chunk of snow on his hand. He was joined by his older son Lope, who took advantage of his dad no looking to grab a huge chunk of snow from the roof and brought it inside with him to nibble on the frozen refreshment! In the end, we are all kids on the inside!
