Gorillas are often considered one of the most spiritual animals, as they not only have high levels of intelligence but also show emotional ranges similar to those of humans.
An American mother recently took her newborn baby to the zoo and was surprised to find a female gorilla looking at her baby intently and with loving eyes.
The maternal, loving expression immediately touched many social media users as the moment was caught on camera and shared online.
根據美國媒體報導，一名美國媽媽艾蜜莉娜（Emmelina）近日帶著僅5週大的兒子坎勇（Canyon）到波士頓富蘭克林公園的動物園（Franklin Park Zoo）遊玩，沒想到一隻名叫Kiki的母猩猩一看到這對母子就展現出濃厚的興趣，不僅來到窗前盯著寶寶看，還數度伸手觸摸玻璃，似乎十分想摸摸寶寶，過程大約持續了五分鐘之久。
According to U.S. media reports, Emmelina, an American took her 5-week-old son, Canyon, to visit the Franklin Park Zoo in Boston.
Unexpectedly, a female gorilla named Kiki showed great interest when she saw the mother and child.
She not only came to the window to stare at the baby but also reached out and touched the glass several times. She seemed to want to touch the baby very much, and the entire process lasted about five minutes.
Even more interesting, Kiki later brought her son Pablo to the glass window, seemingly wanting to share the joy of being a mother with Emmelina. Pablo hung on Kiki’s arm and looked with curious eyes at the crowd in front of the glass.
Kiki herself is a mother of five children, and she gave birth to the youngest, a male gorilla named Pablo in October 2020, which may be why she was so interested in Emmelina and the baby, the zoo said.
Michael Austin, who is the husband of Emmelina, recorded the interaction between the mother gorilla and his family and uploaded it to YouTube.
The warm picture touched many people and attracted more than 1.3 million people to watch it in just three days.
