Gorilla who walks like a human goes viral online


ca.news.yahoo.com

Amid news that our ancestors left Africa much earlier than we previously thought, another African primate's human behaviour is making waves online.

Meet Ambam, a 21-year-old Silverback Western Lowland gorilla at Port Lympne Wild Animal Park in the English city of Kent, who has become an overnight viral video star.

The cause of his new-found celebrity? An upright walking style that's all too human. Check out the video below to see for yourself

Anyone who believes in Adam and Eve and the talking snake? Get real folks!!!!!!!!!
I suppose Jonah living in a whale for three days is also real? LOL

What I see is a very interesting possible forward movement in the evolution of captive gorillas. Those gorillas have obviously spent enough time in beneficial proximity to humans that they have started to adopt our behaviour.
It's also interesting to read the comments about how the other primates around them couldn't care less. And the conquest of humans !? get real.

You get real, there are a lot of dogs, cats, Bears and even lion seals who can walk straight. Heck even elephants lol.

WOW, what a roller coaster ride.

Evolution. Right? Monkey into man.

Imitating humans? Human into monkey?

Make up your mind.

BTW, amazing videos!

Thanks for posting them.

Haha, that top video is unreal!

I swear, at first it looks like a human dude in a gorilla suit! LOL!

I have seen gorillas walk on 2 legs plenty of times, but not like that. His gait IS human like!

Awesome!

Doesn't ca.news.yahoo know that our ancestors were not from Africa?? but are from the middle east? how long are they going to keep this lie?

There is a thread about this that was started a few days ago.

One of the traits that allow humans to walk upright/stand for great lengths of time is that we can lock our knees. I believe chimps and gorillas are capable of similar movement but become fatigued more quickly as they lack this ability At least that is what I recall from a university course way back.

sure there's other animals that can walk on their hind legs,, but are you purposefully ignoring the point so you can point out a menial flaw in someone's comment?

when i saw this video it blew my mind for a second...i've just never seen a gorilla doing it. it's very meaningful in a time-less way...watching the baby-steps of evolution can be pretty beautiful in my opinion...

Yes, you have never seen it before, I have. I have seen dogs who can walk on two legs, does that mean millions of years from now dogs will walk on two legs?

Baby steps of evolution? I wish I could live for millions of years, I know life would get boring, but it would be worth knowing if evolution is actually true or false.

who are you to say that dogs won't walk on two legs? please give me some evidence that proves dogs can't evolve into the Universal-Human form. you must be smarter than me cause you've.. seen stuff. except acceptable proof/faith in evolution i suppose.

Never said I was smarter, also never said evolution is incorrect or correct.

I said I wish I could live a million years to see whether Evolution is actually correct.

At the moment evolution is faith based.

Micro evolution happens, but evolution where one specie produces another, needs millions of years of observation, to be a fact.

A Gorilla walking straight doesn't mean evolution, a Gorilla walking straight means the Gorilla has the ability to walk straight, and one Gorilla decided he wants to be different.

Humans have the same ability, I seen humans who wear ridiculous cloths which I have never seen before. It doesn't mean evolution, it means humans have the ability to wear what ever the want, and one human decided to be different.

In the end, it isn't evolution, it is choice. It isn't something mysterious, it isn't something complicated, it isn't something new, nor surprising.

Have you seen someone eat with their feet, clean the house with their feet, brush their tooth with their feet. Basically do everyday which you normally do with your hand, with your feet.

That simply means we have that ability, it doesn't mean evolution.

ya i was thinking about that too...it's been studied that when one primate started making tools to find food other primates started doing the same thing once they saw the benefit...then that leads you to consider the "100th monkey effect" that states that once 100 monkeys learn a new skill ALL monkeys of the same species will begin showing the skill even though they are not in the immediate environment of the first monkey. (of course the critical mass isn't 100 monkeys exactly, is simply a name for the phenomenon). i think the idea is that animals still have conscious contact with their species' mass consciousness, so they start to learn the skill from their subconscious/unconscious selves via their connection to their own species' mass consciousness once enough members of their species begin to consciously use their new skill.

Anyone stop to think that these monkeys have the runs or something?

They kind of look knotted up and the videos end prematurely.
