“An amazing chance encounter with a troop of wild mountain gorillas near Bwindi National Park, Uganda.”

Top youtube comment:

That brief stare at 5:11, that huge male giving that look, makes you doubt for a moment who is the superior being. He looks soooo insanely powerful and he knows that, he doesnt look worried at all, he is in total control of the situation.

Respect to that big ass family guy taking care of his kids.

  1. I think when my kids are grown I may have to pull a Dian Fossey and go live with the gorillas. So amazing!
