If you happened to stay awake during science class, then you might know that humans are most closely related to apes than any other family of animals. Even knowing this evolutionary fact, scientists at the Kent wildlife park were still shocked to see this phenomenon.
Ambam, a 27-year-old silverback gorilla at Port Lympn Animal Park in Kent, UK, gained international fame when he was captured on video walking upright like a human. Park officials say that he has not been trained to do so and that he probably behaves this way so that he may have a better view of his carers or to be able to see where the food is beaing scatered in the enclosure.
What ever the reason, this is a unique sight of our glorious ancestor. Make sure to share the video with your friends.

      Now, let's hope that no g-ddamn IDIOT parents let their kid go into the gorilla's pen, so that Ambam gets shot like poor Harambe did!

      From certain angles, his coat makes him look like a black and white picture or painting of a girl in a dress looking over her shoulder
