Zoo's Safety Glass Is No Match For The Charge Of An Adult Male Silverback Gorilla
Apr 20, 2015
Gorillas in captivity can reach up to 600 pounds, most of which is muscle. While everyone made it out of the scary situation safely, the massive animal clearly taught all zoo-goers a lesson - don't tap on the glass.
A family trip to the Omaha Henry Doorly Zoo in Nebraska ended up being a bit more eventful than what the family likely anticipated. A Silverback gorilla was taken aback by a young girl pounding on her chest. He obviously believed he was being challenged and he reacts in a way that no one would expect.
