Our furry relatives, the Gorillas astounds us yet again with their ability to learn and even teach us. In a viral animal video that is not only winning hearts but teaching us humans to abide by rules and regulations, a gorilla in Miami zoo can be seen telling visitors to stop feeding him using sign language.
The video was shared by a Twitter account with the caption, "Lowland gorilla at Miami zoo uses sign language to tell someone that he's not allowed to be fed by visitors."
Watch the video here:
In the 9-second clip, the gorilla can be seen sitting on the ground while exacting a sign language that tells visitors that they cannot give him food. Commenting on the gorilla’s ability to commute with visitors using sign language, a user commented, "Wow what a clever lad...bless him. Gorilla's and Orangutans are more intelligent than us Humans...This gets me right in my heart...wow."
‘’Research shows that gorrila's, monkey's, orangutan's, Apes, all can learn sign language and use it in everyday conversation by initiating the conversation first’’ another commented.
While another user praising the gorilla for its acumen, tweeted, That gorilla, is more intelligent than the person it is trying to communicate with!!
