A gorilla is a large ape that stands about the same height as a man but is much larger and stronger. These animals are distinguished by their intelligence, tranquility, and friendliness to people if they respond in the same way. Africa is home to gorillas.
Gorillas are social animals who spend more than half of their time looking for food. They are active and can walk on two legs, but prefer to go through trees or rest on their hands.
A gorilla family usually includes one male, several females, and cubs. The male is the flock’s leader, deciding where the flock goes and stops. Even if the flock has mature males, only the flock leader has the right to mate with females.
Every four years, females give birth to one baby. Mothers carry their children on their backs until they are able to walk and climb trees independently. Even after that, the cub remains with his mother until he is five years old.
By the age of ten, gorillas are completely self-sufficient and mature. The gorilla’s reverent feelings for her baby are depicted in the video below by the author.
“The first-time mother gorilla can’t stop kissing her baby gorilla. Kalaya is a western lowland gorilla who is 15 years old. She has recently given birth to a son and is expressing her love for him.”
The baby was named Moki, which means “little” in the Lingala language. Just before the delivery, the trainer taught Kalaya basic maternal skills like kissing and grooming to increase her chances of caring for Moki.
What the zookeepers saw appeared to be the gorilla’s unending love for her cub.
