Gorilla Brings Her Baby To Meet Mom And Newborn In Heartwarming Encounter

 This is the heartwarming moment a gorilla and a woman adorably bond over their newborn babies! The motherly love is surely the strongest power on Earth and this viral moment is the perfect proof. When Michael Austin, his wife Emmily and their newborn baby decided to pay a visit to the Franklin Park Zoo in Boston, they never thought they will experience one of the most touching encounters a human being and a wild creature could ever have. “When I walked into the zoo that day, I never could’ve imagined that we’d have this experience,” Emmily said.

 

When they got close to Kiki’s enclosure – an ᴇɴᴅᴀɴɢᴇʀᴇᴅ Western Lowland gorilla – they had quite an experience. The young family spotted the gorilla in her 7-month-old son’s company, so they stopped for a moment. It did not took too long until Kiki and her baby Pablo approached their visitor, but what happened next goes beyond any imagination. The critically ᴇɴᴅᴀɴɢᴇʀᴇᴅ western lowland gorilla has five children and is clearly interested in babies. You can hear several people audibly gasping and exclaiming ‘oh my god’ as the gorilla approaches the glass. Kiki the taps on the window and points right at Canyon, it looks like she is trying to hold his hand. Emmily then points behind Kiki and says ‘look at her baby,’ before the intelligent gorilla lifts up Pablo the baby gorilla to show her visitors.

‘The next time she made eye contact with Kiki, she held up Canyon again and waved her over, then Kiki grabbed Pablo and put him on her leg to carry him over to us. My wife sat on the floor and Kiki came over and immediately started interacting with us.‘It was one of the most amazing experiences to see her trying to hold Canyon’s hand, lick him through the glass, and she just kept on pointing to us and then down at him, almost as if she was telling us, “That’s your baby”. The two mothers then had this magical interaction that lasted a few minutes. And all this time, they seem to speak the same language. It was a really special and intense bond. My wife and I both had tears in our eyes and we had several people tell us they had never witnessed something or experienced something so beautiful as this in their life.‘Such an incredible memory to share with our son some day!’
