This Gorilla Really Wants To See Your Vacation Pics On Your Phone

Jelani, a silverback gorilla at Louisville Zoo, Kentucky, likes to look at photos on visitor’s phones. Video editor Paul Ross spied this ape in action during a recent visit to the zoo, looking at photos of other gorillas on a young man’s smartphone and even motioning him to keep scrolling.

“I stumbled upon the boy sharing pictures with Jelani touring the zoo with my one-year-old daughter,” Ross told Daily Mail. “The boy was scrolling through gorilla pictures, and Jelani would motion with his hand to move to the next photo.” Encounters like these make you feel a little sad that such an intelligent creature is in a zoo!

Yes and no. Bad zoos suck. Good zoos are helping to save many species from extinction, as well as teaching us humans to respect our neighbours on this planets.
