Gorilla that walks like a man filmed at zoo in UK

Ambam, a silverback gorilla, has become an internet sensation after being filmed walking on his hind legs. Ambam was born at Port Lympne’s sister park, Howletts, in 1990. Both parks are dedicated to protecting rare species and are managed by an international conservation charity called The Aspinall Foundation (TAF). TAF are pioneers in the conservation of gorillas both at the Kent Parks and at its gorilla rescue and rehabilitation projects in Congo and Gabon where it protects over 1 million acres of unique ecosystem. For further information on visiting the gorillas at Port Lympne or if you would like to adopt a gorilla please go to here.
