This Gorilla Is Reunited With The Man Who Saved Him.My Heart Melts!!!

Please, meet, Damian Aspinall, he is a conservationist at The Aspinall Foundation. This Foundation for 10 years has been reintroducing captive gorillas from Howletts Wild Animal Park in England back into the Wild, to their million acre reserves in West Africa. Gorilla Kwibi has been brought back into the Wild by Damian when he was five years old. Five years later Damian Aspinall decided to visit gorilla in his new home. But looking for a gorilla in the African jungle is like looking for a needle in a haystack. Damian’s determination payed off. Gorilla heard his voice and came to the edge of the river. The man was concerned about approaching the animal, but his worries disappeared quickly. Enjoy and share their wonderful and heartwarming reunion.



How sweet and warm was that?! My eyes suddenly got wet. Gorillas are very intelligent animals, that can also experience a wide range of emotions: love, hate, fear, grief, joy, greed, generosity, pride, shame, empathy, and jealousy. These animals laugh when they are tickled and cry when they are sad or hurt. However, they cry with sounds, not tears. Gorillas communicate with each other by using different gestures, body postures, facial expressions, vocal sounds, chestslaps, drumming and odors. Although they cannot reproduce human speech, these animals are capable of understanding what they are told. Gorillas are also able to learn and use up to 1000 signs in sign language. Gorilla is one of the few animals that uses tools for problem-solving purposes. For example, they can use a tree branch as a bridge, to cross muddy ground. Gorillas are actually shy and peaceful, unless improperly disturbed. They are territorial animals, so invasion of their space might trigger the aggression. A gorilla shares 97% of its biology with human beings. Its DNA is 97-98% identical to ours. Gorilla is the next closest living relative to humans, after the chimpanzee.
