King Kong these two gorillas in the midst of the Calgary Zoo in Alberta, Canada are not. Instead, a crawling caterpillar video highlights just how curious and calm they can be when something has their attention.
Wild beasts in the animal kingdom don't typically look without touching when another animal crosses their path, but the two caged gorillas seem reluctant to get too close to the caterpillar making its way across their zoo-imposed boundary.
And isn't that so funny? The strongest animals in the kingdom fearful of touching one of the smallest?
As the caterpillar inches up and along the bars that hold the two primates it appears unfazed by the four large eyes that peer at it with great consternation.
It's good it is oblivious or else it might faint with fear.
The gorillas, sequestered away from curious zoo guests behind bars of metal, are used to being the ones peered at, but today they are the ones doing the peering. And they don't seem to understand the creature crawling slowly before them--or want to touch it.
And isn't that kind of like the children gazing in at the gorillas when they visit the zoo: curious and fearful at the same time?
Thus far the crawling caterpillar video that captures the captivated gorillas in Canada has been viewed upwards of 93,000 times, according to Trending Now.
