This video is a perfect example of sibling rivalry. It doesn’t matter if you’re seven years old or seventy-seven, a boy or a girl, you will always find the time to prank your sibling. The race, the gender, the animal kingdom you belong to are all moot points when it comes to having a bit of fun with your relative. Apparently, gorillas are quite the pranksters.
Check out these popular gorilla siblings from the Twycross Zoo in England – you just can’t ever stop watching them! There is always something happening in their nook in the zoo. In this instance, Lope the Gorilla youngster is harassing his baby brother by grabbing him several times. He tries to trip him but to no avail. The baby gorilla, however, has other plans. He just knows that no matter how nasty his older brother gets, he would always have his mommy to take care of him.
Take a look as this situation “goes down” and wild instincts kick in. The gorilla mama watches over her two little trouble-makers from a distance, but isn’t willing to step in until the last moment. It seems like the older brother has finally crossed the line when he manages to trip the baby with a swipe of his hand. The mom steps in between the two and takes the baby by her side. The little mischievous tot stays back for a few seconds, wanting to gloat, but in true mom fashion, she scolds him and makes him climb on her back to get to safety.
