Here is mother gorilla with her baby, who by the looks of it is interacting with guests.
Sure, they have families too, and they feed and shelter from harsh environments, but more than any other survival trait, animals have feelings, and they express feelings.
No matter which side of the fence you sit on, there are countless videos to prove it.
Check out this mother gorilla with her little one who seems to be interacting with guests.
Her visitors are well-behaved, just watching her and admiring her size and appearance.
As if to show how much she appreciates them, the gorilla holds her baby so they can see her.
Her guests loved it. “Gorilla beringei beringei” can live up to 35 years and weigh up to 500 pounds.
Habitat loss has always been a major threat, which is why they are often kept in enclosures.
Agriculture, illegal mining and deforestation for charcoal have degraded their habitat.
In addition, there is climate change, which also poses a threat to gorillas.
They can adapt by moving to higher altitudes, but these areas are densely populated and there is little forest left. Communicating with people sounds nice, but catching the disease is also a real risk.
These glass windows and steel cages are designed to protect both the gorillas and human visitors.
And besides, they can still communicate, as seen in this video. The mother takes her little one in her arms and then cradles her before kissing her little one on “Ouch” to her visitors.
Moms all over the world know this feeling all too well.
Female gorillas give birth to one calf after about nine months of pregnancy.
But the kids are small, only four kilograms, so they will only cling to their mother’s fur.
