Rowdy Baby Gorilla Gets Disciplined By Dad In Front Of Zoo Visitors

Shufai the baby gorilla was has a great time playing with some tree branches in Twycross ZOO until his father Oumbi decided to take them all away (since technically he's playing with his food). But when Shufai persists, Oumbi does a total dad move to let him know he's serious! The kid runs after his dad, while the 24-year-old Silverback gorilla gather all the branches from the enclosure and puts them away. Shufai’s older brother Lope knows well to stay away from dad’s path, but the gorilla youngster wants his toys back. In an effort to stop dad from removing all of his toys, Shufai tries to grab dad by the foot, but the elder puts him back in his place with a determined, but still very gentle nudge with the foot. Body language is a big deal with these giants and the baby knew that very instant that playtime is over! Instead of chasing after dad, the baby sits on his butt and contemplates his choices, before turning away and running after mom Ozala. Shufai was born on September 24, 2016 and is the third baby for 22-year-old mother Ozala and 24-year-old father Oumbi. As well as being a joyous occasion for zoo staff and visitors, the birth is an important part of conservation efforts to save the species, as the number of Western lowland gorillas in the wild has dramatically declined by more than 60% in the last 20-25 years, and scientists predict they will become extinct in the next 20 years or so.

Gorilla Youngster Preciously Plays With Baby Brother

Meet the Lope the cheeky gorilla youngster from the Twycross Zoo in England. Enjoy as he gets chased all around his enclosure by his little brother Shufai. If you think that is cute, wait until you see both of them at the end of the video! 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. Shufai, on the other hand, is his first younger brother, which made headlines last year on his birth. The 4- and 1-year-old, respectively, can be seen running around their enclosure in Twycross, just like human siblings would. It is an important aspect of a gorilla youngers’s behavior. Mom is close by to keep a watchful eye on the two sons, but she will never intervene, because this is also how they 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.

 This Conceited Penguin Is Obsessed With His Own Reflection38s

This Conceited Penguin Is Obsessed With His Own Reflection

This penguin from the Colchester Zoo in England seems to be in love with his own reflection. See how he walks back and forth looking at his face in the mirror with utter curiosity. He even tries to talk to it and shares kisses. Meet Narcissus the penguin. In Greek mythology, Narcissus was a hunter who was known for his beauty. He was proud, in that he disdained those who loved him. When Narcissus came to a pool where he saw his own reflection in the water, he instantly fell in love with himself, not realizing that it was merely an image. Unable to leave the beauty of his reflection, Narcissus lost his will to live and stared at his reflection until he died. Narcissus is the origin of the term narcissism, a fixation with oneself and one's physical appearance or public perception. The same applies for Narcissus the penguin who is deeply obsessed with his own reflection in the mirror, ignoring everything that is going on around him. First he walks up and down the mirror, gazing at his own reflection and trying to outrun it. Then he stops and stares at it, and finally tries to make a conversation. He flaunts with his appearance by raising his neck and making loud noises. He is so full of himself, the real king of the zoo. Have you ever fell in love with your own reflection when walking in front of a mirror?

Tidy Orangutan Mother Puts Toys Away

The Twycross Zoo is having an enrichment day for the animals by throwing lots of colorful balls and some boxes into the enclosure. The orangutan mom with her newborn baby in her arms decides it looks all a bit messy and, in classic mom fashion, she begins to tidy up after her offspring. She starts cleaning up by putting all the balls back into the box. Still with her newborn in her arms, she then carries the boxes with the balls in her mouth all the way up to the top of her climbing frame. She only drops one red ball! What a champ! Just how cute is this video? And we can all relate to the way mom takes care of the mess her baby made! It's just adorable! It's yet another proof that motherhood is the same with all the species out there, and an example that moms always have our backs - you won't find a better playmate or best friend out there, and this little baby surely knows this very well! Now for some background info: orangutans are among the most intelligent primates; they use a variety of sophisticated tools and construct elaborate sleeping nests each night from branches and foliage. The apes have been extensively studied for their learning abilities. There may even be distinctive cultures within populations. Field studies of the apes were pioneered by primatologist Birutė Galdikas. All three orangutan species are considered to be critically endangered. Human activities have caused severe declines in populations and ranges. Threats to wild orangutan populations include poaching, habitat destruction, and the illegal pet trade. Several conservation and rehabilitation organisations are dedicated to the survival of orangutans in the wild. (source: Wikipedia)

It seems that even the animal kingdom cannot escape unwanted advances by males! In this hilarious clip, a funny moment at the zoo is captured on camera as a gorgeous white lioness brushes against a sleeping male.

Unusual friendship between orangutan father and daughter

There's nothing like the bond between a father and his daughter. Well for humans at least. As they grow up, daddy's little girl slowly develops into the woman that she was destined to be. A wave of pride washes over the father once he realizes that she isn't the little girl she used to be anymore, and that she is ready to take on the world all on her own. Is it the same for orangutans? Normally you would think Orangutan males are solitary, but not this one. Father and daughter Molly are quite inseparable. The young orangutan is always playing and annoying her dad by pulling his hair or swinging into him.

Gibbon father's heartwarming playtime with daughter

No matter what they do, the gibbons always make the visitors at this zoo smile. Dad seems to be in a playful mood and starts to wrestle with his daughter, Meo. Too cute! White-cheeked gibbons differ from the great apes by being monogamous for life, with the female taking the majority of the parental care. Young gibbons have not been observed to play regularly, possibly due to the small social groups, but this dad has really taken to care for his daughter, so much so that he is making sure that she has the proper childhood! There’s a declining trend with the population of gibbons in the wild, accounting over 80% in the last 45 years, which classifies them as endangered by the IUCN. Due to deforestation and poaching, their numbers are seriously declining in their native Laos, Vietnam and Southern China.
