Toddler Walks Up To Baby Gorilla, Gorilla's Next Move Is Incredibly Human

When an adorable little boy went for a visit with his family to the Columbus Zoo, the gorillas caught his eye in a special way. Discovering these large animals was so much fun from a distance, but then the toddler got closer to find out what they are really like.
He noticed that one of the gorillas was hanging out in the distance, while another one of them was a lot closer to the glass. The temptation was too great not to try to get his attention.
That's when the unforgettable moment started to unfold. This gorilla goes to show that animals have emotions just like humans and wasn't about to hide it from anyone.
Being a curious toddler, the little boy couldn't resist interacting with the gorilla in whatever way he possibly could. Simply watching was out of the question though. The little guy started drawing the gorilla's attention to see what might happen.
Taking children to the zoo can often have unpredictable moments. One can never know for certain how the animals will react when seeing humans of all different ages and personalities.
Adults and children alike point at them and talk to them without evening knowing how much it could entice them. When this little boy does just enough to get the gorilla to react, everyone was shocked by what took place.
At some zoos, gorillas can be aggressive with guests. One gorilla leaving its teen years and heading to maturity actually smacked the viewing glass and cracked the first of three layers.
