Gorilla Makes a New Friend at the Zoo

Posted by Kelli on September 6, 2015

This is a very cool video, but it’s sad in a way. At the Louisville Zoo, a young man showed a silverback gorilla photos on his phone of other gorillas. The gorilla, whose name is Jelani, appeared genuinely interested as the guy scrolled through the pics.


It seems like the two really bonding. It’s cool that he was captivated by the photos, but maybe that means that he isn’t seeing enough other gorillas in real life.


This particular gorilla apparently really likes technology. His profile on the Louisville Zoo site says Jelani’s a “laidback individual and likes to look at cellphone photos and videos.”
