Watch: Baby gorillas beating their chests

Posted by Elise Kirsten on 1 August 2019

This short BBC Earth footage may just be the most adorable thing you’ll see all day. The video shows baby gorillas learning to beat their chests and explains that both male and female gorillas go through a phase of imitating the large males.

Adult silverback males will beat their chest as a display of dominance, however these cute babies seem distracted and sheepish as they try out this skill.
