Parents were shocked when a pair of gorillas at a zoo started acting like they do on the Discovery Channel in front of the kids.
When you bring the kids to the zoo to experience the wonders of the animal kingdom, you must always be aware that there is a chance that all animals, large and small, will engage in mischievous behavior.
Whether we are watching them or not, animals engage in all kinds of activities, but some encounters are really only possible in zoos.
For example, it’s unlikely that you will see an orangutan smoking in the wild, and it’s unlikely that you will bring your entire family to observe a gorilla sex session up close.
But that’s exactly what some unlucky zoogoers witnessed when a pair of gorillas decided to mate in their enclosure in front of everyone.
They essentially just got into position and started fighting, so there wasn’t much foreplay to alert parents to what was about to happen.
Thankfully, it wasn’t exactly a boisterous mating display that might have drawn attention from everyone at the zoo visiting the gorillas and prompted children to ask their parents what was going on.
Visitors to the zoo could only watch as a male gorilla’s rear slowly shuddered.
The mating pair was occasionally approached by one of the young gorillas, who sat directly behind the male and even touched his behind while thankfully blocking most of what was happening.
Visitors to the gorilla exhibit at the zoo quickly realized what was going on; one was overheard complaining that they had “seen too much” before going on to see a ton more and joking that they were watching a “porno film.”
There is always a chance that animals will start fighting when they are put together, and this risk increases if you keep the animals in a public setting like a zoo where visitors can see them.
Given that the sex only lasted a few minutes and that both gorillas wandered off without exchanging any more words afterward, we can assume that it wasn’t all that good.
Although we at Hasan Jasim are not experts on animals, the absence of a post-coital cuddle and the fact that both gorillas simply walked away from each other are not positive signs.
Let’s be honest; gorillas require love too. Without other animals to interact with, they become incredibly lonely, and some spend their entire lives in captivity.
