I love the pure joy on the gentlemans face, his eyes told a story of pure wonder and thankfullness ... even animals can be gentle and curious, another human would have passed by and not even said good morning, even animals have manners ... I can't say the same for some humans... the video is inspiring ... pure ...

Pure bliss, no worries at all. Truly the way life should be. Very inspiring video. Thanks for sharing!!!

Thanks for the video. It's amazing just how gentle those powerful gorillas can be.

Here's another one that "touched" me:

Part of our problem is the the use of the psychological separation into us and them, via the use of the word 'animal'.

Apes are not 'animals.'

That word is reserved for the kinds of organic concoctions which have no thought process.

Which means you can't apply it to even your dog, or cat, and not pigs either, as they are at least twice as smart as a dog.

Without psychoanalyzing the word "animal" or a person's thought process, yes they are animals and so are dogs, cats and pigs.

Can you help me to understand where animals are defined as not having a thought process? Perhaps an amoeba does not have a thought process, and they too are animals, but I have never heard of the reservation that you are speaking of.

The Vedas say there are 400,000 species of 'humans' in our universe...maybe gorillas are 1?
It would certainly appear so!

Carmody- I would like to challenge your statement regarding the definition of 'animal'. Of course a gorilla is an animal, as, according to many definitions, are we humans. 'Animal' is not a insulting word anymore than 'bird' or 'insect' is, it is a definition of what form of living being we are talking about.

Personally I am proud to be part of the animal division if it means I am in the same category as these noble creatures!

Wow! What a video. I wonder what the heart rate of the guy sitting there was when the baby walked up and stroked his head and hair. I think my heart would have jumped out of my skin. Thanks a bunch for posting such a telling, insightful video.

It looked as if the silverback was taking his family on an outing to the human zoo. To him perhaps it was an educational field trip for his children to see and learn about humans.
