“Silverback gorilla” is the name given to the male leader of a group of mountain gorillas. The name comes from the silver saddles on his back. Silverbacks are responsible for the safety of their group.
A young girl visiting the Henry Doorly Zoo in Omaha, Nebraska, USA witnessed this firsthand.
The girl watched the gorillas from behind 15cm glass.
Soon, the gorillas began to behave aggressively.
The aggressive behaviour escalated…
Make sure you watch until the end. The girl is lucky that the glass is 15cm thick.
