Today we’ll learn more about one of your favorite animal friends - gorillas! Gorillas are peaceful, gentle and shy in nature. They are intelligent and since they share about 98% of their genetic code with humans, they are our next closest cousins after chimpanzees and bonobos. Gorillas express emotions much like you do and exhibit behaviors like laughing. They hug and play to show their love for each other. Tender, tranquil and smart.
