That is the most chill gorilla ever. I see that and I think F U poachers. You have to be sick to want to make ashtrays out of those hands.

level 2

Ashtrays out of gorilla hands?! That's the most fucking disgusting thing I have ever heard of!

level 3

It doesn’t work! https://youtu.be/3YKtd4AD1Zk

level 4

I knew it’d be Karl before I clicked.

level 4

I've never seen that show. I may have to watch it now.

level 5

It’s Brilliant!!

level 5

Lil something called "best show ever"

level 5

It’s pretty dam good I would recommend it.

level 3

yeah. but you know what you could use a dead gorillas hand for. ;)

level 4

👌

level 3

just make sure you don't make any wishes while holding one - that's when the real sick shit begins.

level 2

Wait... did he get punished for this in the past??

level 1

It's like a drug deal just happened.

level 2

"What drug deal?" - Gorilla probably.

level 2

Edited, I found the footage! This is the same gorilla who uses sign language to say that he is not allowed to be fed. Then this happens. I don't know why the footage is separated as the sign language + stealth catch and eating is so much better than one half of the story.

level 2

Amazing.. a very well behaved gorilla I must say.

level 3

a little too well behaved..

level 4

He knows what happens when gorillas act up in zoos.

RIP our boy

level 3

FYI everyone, this Gorilla died last week.

level 4

Terminal Pretzelosis.

level 3

A really nice catch as well. Very smooth.

And here starts the cycle. Someone is going to post the sign language clip about how cool that was. Someone in the comments will ask if it's the same gorilla who sneakily caught that snack. Oh my, yes it is, I found the video here! A couple weeks it months later the snack catching is posted and we're back where we are. Karma flows, chuckles are had, and we go on with our day.

level 3

If only someone would stitch the vids together we would all be saved!

level 1

Looks like he's afraid to be caught?! What are they gonna do.. Go in and take it away from him? God luck with that.

Dicks out for pretzel-gorilla

level 4

Nobody ever told me to put my dick back in..

level 5

The title of your sextape.

level 6

I laughed way too hard at this. Have some reddit silver

level 7

so like were you going to give him the silver or just... ?

level 3

Where's my dick

level 3

Has anyone ever told you the story of Darth Harambe the bold?

level 2

He's obviously an adult (gorilla) too bc a kid or even a dog just eats things faster when you try to get them to stop

level 2

possibly feed him less or yell at the people that gave him food

level 2

Only thing I can think of is he might not be the silver back of his group, other then that there’s no animal in that zoo fucking with him

level 1

Nice catch Hayes. Don't ever fuckin' do it again.

level 2

Lol if there are two things I’ll always upvote they’re Major League and Airplane! references.

level 1

Nice throw.

level 2

That catch, though. Good throw, but the catch was next level.

level 3

That was some serious inside-the-pocket sleight of hand shit. While you were watching he also stole your car keys.

Right? The gorilla didn't even have to move his hand, except to hide it.

level 1
13 points · 1 month ago

That was some smooth shit

level 1

I could watch gorillas all day. They amaze me.

level 2

It is ridiculous how human they are and we never even talk about it. Whenever someone is talking about something pointless I'm just in my head thinking "Koko the gorilla knew thousands of words and you're discussing resteraunts?!"

level 3

Hate to be the one but Koko knew no words and only his handlers could understand him and they were pretty liberal with their translations. It was pretty much like hans the horse.

Fuck people who throw food to animals at zoos. Years ago someone threw food into the Orangutan exhibit and it led to them fighting over it. One ape was killed and it disrupted the entire hierarchy.

level 2

Plus most animals have very specific diets and can't tolerate a lot of human food. A lot of places have food available for you to give to certain animals and giving it to any others is stupid and can be very harmful to them. Theres a reason the signs exist.

level 3

We can’t eat hobbits food!

level 2

Source?

I tried to find an article online but couldn’t. I think it was about 15 years ago. I heard it from a zookeeper.

Edit: ok, ok, I found a link. Stop down voting me. This article explains how some visitors threw cookies to the orangutans which led to a fight which led to one of them falling in the moat and nearly drowning (rescued by another visitor who was a lifeguard and given cpr by another visitor). What the article does not include is that the ape died of pneumonia a few days later. https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/rescuers-go-ape-at-toronto-zoo-1.162922

you made it sound like he was Sparta'd to death

animals fighting over food you say? crazy! I'm sure it only happened that one time. thank goodness you internet bad-assed all over those people. you the real MVP

edit: I will go to my local zoo and throw one banana nut cookie in the monkey cage for every down vote.

level 1

Makes you think, what do they do to the gorilla if they catch it eating human food.

level 2
19 points · 1 month ago

It's not that it's a human's food. It's that if the dominant male sees that someone else has something he doesn't, shit's gonna hit the fan.

level 2

Stricter diet.

level 1

Kind of a dick move to throw food in an animal enclosure.

LOOK OUT HE'S COMING RIGHT FOR US!

level 1

"and I just have this little itch on my nose... awww yissss"

level 1

This gorilla is way more coordinated than I am, he watches the arc and his arm barely moves to catch it.

level 1

His fur looks so fluffy. Kind of like someone combed it out but I have a hard time imagining the gorilla putting up with that.

level 1

This guy needs to be out in the baseball field!

level 2

I'm certain Japan is working on gorilla baseball right now

level 1

Perfect Pitch!

level 1

slick

level 1

Yeah after they took Harambe from us I'd be afraid to step out of line as well

level 1

That was the smoothest catch I have ever seen...

level 1

Gorillas have been shot for less.

level 1

Snooth motherfucker

level 1

REEEEEEEEEEEEE

level 1

That was so sly lol.

level 1

Great throw, right into the bread basket

level 1

Yo props to the guy that threw whatever it was to the gorilla. This has to be Stone Cold’s beer thrower guy. Absolutely pin point throwing.

level 1

They’re extra cautious now about catching things that came from the crowd

level 1

That was awesome.

level 1

Harambe loved pretzels too..... :(

Gorilla's would make awesome baseball catchers.
