Classy Gorilla Cleans And Peels Carrot Before Eating
Every kid wants to go to the zoo. Having the opportunity to see all those animals up close and personal, but without the fear of actually getting attacked by one can be very educational. Even as adults, this pure pleasure has not changed. We don’t know about you, but we love going to the zoo! Spending a whole day seeing animals of all kinds is absolutely amazing and, like most people, we take photos to make lasting memories!
This precious video was filmed at the zoo in the Netherlands, and we believe that you will absolutely love it. This gorilla loves eating a carrot, but before he eats them, he needs to clean them first. Nobody wants to eat dirty food, right?
Just like us humans, this gorilla prefers his carrots peeled! Watch him closely as he first wipes off all the dirt from the hay and then peels each carrot with his teeth and spits it out. He also chops off the ends before he starts eating it! Filmed in Ouwehand Zoo in the Netherlands.
The more we learn about gorillas, the more impressed we are. The next time we see a gorilla throwing out pieces of carrots from the mouth, we will know he or she is just cleaning them. Good job, we are very impressed!
Everybody likes their food a certain way, including gorillas! My how smart they are, and they don't have to be trained, just instinct that the creator gave them! Another fantastic insight to these obviously highly intelligent creatures. Who would have thought that this Gorilla does not like the skin on its carrots? We are learning so much about gorillas and every time we learn something new about them we are more and more impressed of them.
Gorillas are strong and brilliant animals. They are the world's biggest primates, with male gorillas weighing around 143-169kg and remaining about 1.4-1.8m tall. Females will, in general, be 20-30cm shorter and generally weigh half what the guys do. A male gorilla's arm length is colossal, extending 2.3-2.6m, while female gorilla's arm ranges are relatively smaller.
Gorillas have shown in many ways that they are highly intelligent animals. They have been seen a lot of times using tools for eating, bamboo as a ladder to help their babies climb and even using sticks to measure water depth. How impressing is that? Did you know that all gorillas have unique fingerprints?
