The silver-haired gorilla in the video below wasn’t playing when it jumped toward the window at the tourist.
The man in the video “slightly” flinched where others would have peed their pants because the gorilla was trying to make a point. You have to agree, the glass wall or not, this was scary.
This video below shows a few angles of the gorilla trying to attack the man different times.
According to the ZOO’s CEO and executive director, the visitors aren’t doing anything to provoke the gorillas. “It’s just what male gorillas do. They just exude that dominance and they want to show that any way they can, and they make a lot of noise doing it.”
The clip shows the man looking at the male, as he is deep in thought, when suddenly the gorilla jumps at the glass and smacks himself senseless. Apparently, this is not unusual behavior for Kijito – about a year ago, the dude managed to slam himself so hard against a window, the glass pane cracked, but luckily didn’t shatter. No one was injured.
