Ambam is a gorilla who lives at the Port Lympne Wild Animal Park Kent,in England. Most of the time, he looks and behaves like a regular gorilla. He walks on his feet and hands, just like the rest of his species.
But, he has started to show a tendency to walk upright, like a human being, and it’s quite a sight to see! At first he began by standing up and balancing on his feet alone for short periods of time. Eventually, with some regular practice, he started to take steps forward and in no time he was actually able to walk upright.
The six-foot-tall gorilla is quite an imposing sight, but people fascinated by his unusual ability are coming from all over the world to see Ambam’s special “talent” for themselves.
His unique ability has surprised not only the visitors but his caretakers, as well. The zookeepers and scientists speculate that he learned it from watching humans and decided to emulate them.
Whatever his reason, it’s impressive to watch a gorilla wander around his enclosure like a human! Watch the video below and remember to like and share the amazing story!
