We’ve all seen animals at the zoo, and most of the time they mind their own business and we watch them for a minutes before moving on. Very rarely is there any kind of interaction between the animals and the families out for an afternoon of fun. The point is, whoever you are and wherever you go in the zoo, winning an animal’s attention is rarely something that occurs.

They’ve seen dozens if not hundreds of humans before you, and are none-too-fussed about seeing hundreds more after. That’s what makes this video so special. Here we have a newborn baby gorilla altogether delighted to see another toddler walk up and give him a hello. What happens next is a great example of the fun of being young, whether human or gorilla and makes this video a heart-melting must-watch.
