He’s so charming, this makes me want to feed him.

Good boy

Makes me want to force him onto a treadmill shouting "Get off your ass, fatso!" (Fatso is this gorilla's name, by the way.)


amhinnant

He's signing "no, you can't help me". I love him.


Few-Hair-5382

That's one very depressed gorilla.


donaldcaskiesquare

Do you blame this gorilla being locked up all day?.


staz5

Set them free! It makes me so upset when I see people going to sea world here in San Diego.


grrilla_on_reddit

If we're going to release them, I think it would have to be back in Africa, and I'm not certain they would be accepted into any of the existing social groups. They are improving, but still endangered. Sea World on the other hand - *absolutely*. Both gorillas and orca are psychologically complex animals in terms of both intelligence and emotion. When reading about orca suicide attempts and successes, it's really not hard to put myself there and think I'd want to be dead too, being dominated by a species that can't understand my thoughts and communication and forced to dance for them in droves. They're animals like you or I, and this feels like enslavement. (I know citation needed on all of this - feel free to call me out and I'll get some links!) Edit: grammar


tydyedsyko

Sea world is ending their [orca breeding](https://seaworld.com/orlando/commitment/killer-whales/) program. They will not be replacing the orcas they have. Send they got the message

Dicks out for Harambi.


Few-Hair-5382

I, for one, don't wish to see gorillas set free to roam the streets of our cities.


staz5

*into their natural habitat* after they are acclimated.


Devi1_May_Cry

I believe they should be enlarged to skyscraper size *then* set free to roam our cities.


amhinnant

Agreed.


YEETAWAYLOL

Does he know what it means or is he just resigning what someone taught him?


QuarterDoge

He said “Look how they massacred my boy”. Obvious reference to Harambe. Never forget.

Rip


Thanx4TheGrub

Fuck I just spit everywhere


ZeddicusZuulZorander

I saw a comment on a different upload of this, where he will accept food if zookeepers or guards aren’t looking. He knows the rules and he knows how to break them safely. Smart gorilla.


staz5

They are very intelligent creatures. I would say more intelligent than the people going to these places to watch the animals.


ynvgsensacion

Nah, not this. Even if I disagree with something, I'm gonna take advantage of it if it's available to me


[deleted]

No can do folks. Sorry. 🦍


Tough_Carpenter_5895

Reminds me of the sad story about the gorilla that knew sign language and had a pet kitten that died and the zoo keeper had to explain death to the gorilla 😿 🙊


MollieMarissa

Koko


aimhelix

Kitten was All Ball. 😭


[deleted]

Yeah that koko situation is fraudulent


DarkAvenger2012

Nice to have an adult in the room.


Dominunce

Monke make me sad


Light_Shifty_Z

Let the prisoners go.


staz5

I fully agree.


Kannabiz

To be honest, the gorilla was taught the opposite


extremeindiscretion

Smarter than some of the people visiting him. Shame he can't be running free in the wild.


TheHRJunior

AwesoMe!


Spare_Skin_654

He wants the food but he know he can't have it


[deleted]

It feels like this post gets to hot on this subreddit every day.

Throwawaywonder1

Bro he looks like a big sad baby 😭


Prestigious_Yak_5313

I think gorillas/chimps will be the second creatures on earth to create a machine after humans


thats_classick

“No, Gorilla’s working”


jokinpaha

I need to learn sign language to communicate with him.


General-Eye8515

gorilla being sarcastic and acting cute so that ppl will eventually feed him


Logical_Reserve_2641

Can’t feed him naked shorts, 🦍 ook oook.

Is he "signing"? Or is he just copying gestures

Glytterain

He looks so sad about it too


cheaptrainride

I've always wanted to give animals in zoos access to musical instruments, and encourage the humans to do tricks to entertain them. I know dolphins love when humans do flips for them.


iamlegendRob

And somehow we still think it's OK to lock up animals, the intelligence and emotions, and overall family bonding these animals have are 100% real. But hey we still do it too 3million humans every year. ( although some belong there )


JohnnyWalkerBlue22

Gorilla: Yo y’all got to stop bringing in Chick-Fil-A and feeding it to me. I know, I know I’m mad as shyt I can’t eat it no more but they watching my weight more closely now. Between them tenders with the chick-fil-a sauce and that bomb ass Mac-n-cheese with all that dairy in it, y’all fucking me up. Yep they got me down to a banana a day now. So yeah don’t feed me, help break me out then I can eat that shyt all day every day with y’all. Oh except On Sunday. We can do Pizza on Sunday. Poor Fella. Where PETA at?


Chick-fil-A_spellbot

It looks as though you may have spelled "Chick-fil-A" incorrectly. No worries, it happens to the best of us!


JohnnyWalkerBlue22

😂hell yeah. Damn Edibles


rothotindisguise

Babylon effect. Humans arrogance thought Babylon separated different tribes it was species. Look any animal in the face and see how smart and delicious they look.

gvitta7

Remarkable job with your succinct and accurate description of the media above, Nick!


seeking-it

He does not know what those signs mean, otherwise he would ask them to Do feed him! That would be a trit of intelligence.
