A new male gorilla is due to arrive at the London zoo later this year. To prepare them, the keepers gave each of the zoo’s three adult female gorillas a picture of their pending paramour, and the gorillas went, uh, ape.
One female gorilla shrieked in delight, while another wedged the poster in a tree to stare at it. A third, clearly overcome by emotion, held the photo close to her chest — then ate it.
This made me very happy.
