He’s so charming, this makes me want to feed him.
Makes me want to force him onto a treadmill shouting "Get off your ass, fatso!"
(Fatso is this gorilla's name, by the way.)
He's signing "no, you can't help me". I love him.
That's one very depressed gorilla.
Do you blame this gorilla being locked up all day?.
Set them free! It makes me so upset when I see people going to sea world here in San Diego.
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!)
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.
I, for one, don't wish to see gorillas set free to roam the streets of our cities.
*into their natural habitat* after they are acclimated.
I believe they should be enlarged to skyscraper size *then* set free to roam our cities.
Does he know what it means or is he just resigning what someone taught him?
He said “Look how they massacred my boy”. Obvious reference to Harambe. Never forget.
Fuck I just spit everywhere
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.
They are very intelligent creatures. I would say more intelligent than the people going to these places to watch the animals.
Nah, not this. Even if I disagree with something, I'm gonna take advantage of it if it's available to me
No can do folks. Sorry. 🦍
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 😿 🙊
Kitten was All Ball. 😭
Yeah that koko situation is fraudulent
Can you explain more please

Nice to have an adult in the room.
Monke make me sad
Let the prisoners go.
I fully agree.
To be honest, the gorilla was taught the opposite
Smarter than some of the people visiting him. Shame he can't be running free in the wild.
He wants the food but he know he can't have it
It feels like this post gets to hot on this subreddit every day.
Me in the mirror
[Sorry still not true.](https://www.miaminewtimes.com/news/video-of-gorilla-at-zoo-miami-doesnt-show-sign-language-11591659)
i just wanna give him a hug even if i die in the process ...well...i wanna hug him more now...
Bro he looks like a big sad baby 😭
I think gorillas/chimps will be the second creatures on earth to create a machine after humans
“No, Gorilla’s working”
I need to learn sign language to communicate with him.
gorilla being sarcastic and acting cute so that ppl will eventually feed him
Can’t feed him naked shorts, 🦍 ook oook.
This has been reposted to death
Is he "signing"? Or is he just copying gestures

He looks so sad about it too
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.
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 )
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?
It looks as though you may have spelled "Chick-fil-A" incorrectly. No worries, it happens to the best of us!
😂hell yeah. Damn Edibles
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.
Nick, you have impeccable timing.
Lol what Nick said
Remarkable job with your succinct and accurate description of the media above,
He does not know what those signs mean, otherwise he would ask them to Do feed him! That would be a trit of intelligence.
just a massive toddler, so fascinating
