A gorilla was captured strutting his stuff and now the video is driving the internet wild.
The 14-year-old male named Louis apparently doesn’t like getting his knuckles dirty, so instead of walking like a gorilla should, he walks upright like we do. Gorillas can, at times walk upright for a few seconds, but this one does it for minutes at a time…and regularly!
In the video, released by the Philadelphia Zoo, he was holding his favorite treat, tomatoes, and probably didn’t want to crush them.
Although gorillas occasionally walk on two legs (bipedal), it is less common. Not for Louis though - he can often be seen walking bipedal when his hands are full of snack or when the ground is muddy (so he doesn't get his hands dirty)! pic.twitter.com/6xrMQ1MU9S— Philadelphia Zoo (@phillyzoo) March 5, 2018
