Gorilla Youngster Tries To Pull Out Loose Baby Tooth
Biting into an apple is the more common way of getting rid of a loose tooth, but that was evidently too boring for this cheeky mammal. Hilarious footage has emerged of a gorilla youngster vigorously trying to pull out an annoying loose baby tooth.
It looks like Lope is going to get a visit from the tooth fairy! The gorilla youngster from the Twycross Zoo in England manages to lose one of his baby teeth while wrestling with his mom, and eventually pulls out the loose tooth on his own. The tenacious gorilla is seen struggling with the tooth, but in the end manages to pull out the annoying loose tooth with flying colors, proving that he doesn’t need a dentist. Amazing!
Lope, the gorilla youngster from Twycross zoo in England is known for mimicking the human walk, wrestling with the members of his pride, and now even for playing the role of the family doctor. He makes everybody laugh with his swagger and definitely is the coolest kid on the block! In this clip, the five-year-old is seen struggling to pull out a loose tooth with the help of his hands, much to onlookers’ amusement. When he had enough of the annoying loose tooth for the day, he started wrestling with the other gorillas in his zoo enclosure as if nothing has happened! Talk about keeping it cool!
In another heartwarming video, starring Lope, we see this 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. Just look at him munching on a giant piece of popsicle with delight! Maybe that’s what gave him the loose tooth in the first place!
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.
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!
The gorilla family at Twycross consists of 6 members. Oumbi the big male silverback, Ozala the mum of Lope and Shufai. Grandma Bidi and Asante. In 2009 Oumbi joined Twycross zoo to mate with the females. Ozala was Oumbi chosen mate. Lope - was born on the morning of 3 January 2013. Shufai was born on the 24th of September 2016.
Talking about loose teeth, in the past few years we see parents thinking outside the box when their children’s baby teeth start to wiggle, and coming up with new, fun ways of pulling out loose teeth. From using a remote-controlled toy car to pull that stubborn loose tooth out, to attaching a string to a helicopter and flying it high!
Pulling out your loose old baby teeth can be a little scary for young children. So why not make the experience a little easier on them by making the process fun and exciting? Over the years, we have seen a number of different attempts at removing loose teeth from kids' mouths. Generally speaking, these attempts successful or not are made with purposeful intention. It is rare that we see one that is accidental unless it features someone getting a bit hurt.
This latest video features a girl with two small birds on her shoulders. The birds for some reason are pecking at the girl's teeth. We guess they are cleaning her teeth, but we don't really know. One of the birds manages to remove one of the girl's teeth. We assume it was loose already. However, this bird is certainly down with his bloody new treat.
