I can just imagine the emotions raging through that guys head.
Fear, anticipation, excitement...the list is endless.
But sheer euphoria after they walk away.
The size of that silverback was tremendous!
He looked ferocious! The grunts he made would make me shudder.
What an experience that would be...
And for the poster who said they would stare the big brute in the eyes...
Apparently you know absolutely nothing of animal behavior and rank.
The alpha gorilla male does not take challenges lightly...
Any form of eye contact is a challenge.
Especially from another male animal.
That's why he sat right behind him.
TO be above all others.
Because that's his animal instinct.
If that guy made any sudden or wrong moves, the silverback may have felt threatened.
Thus, taking all his might to protect his family.
I am glad the guy in the video sat still and had his head down.
Apparently he knew how to behave during this encounter.
He did the right thing.
