Robin Williams Meets Koko, the Smartest Gorilla in the World. Watch Them Playing Together.

22 January 2018

I love the moment when Koko asks Robin to tickle her. So cute! 

In the imagination of ordinary people, the gorilla turned into the embodiment of all the wildest and most terrible animals. This myth is due to the famous “King Kong”, a feature movie of 1933. It created one of the most recognizable icons of mass culture of the 20th century.

In reality gorillas are peaceful and shy. They are herbivores, they eat plants and bark. For the normal existence of a 350-pound gorilla each day requires a big quantity of plant food.

That is why they have such large bellies (to contain the large intestine) and the head (so that there is something to attach to the huge chewing muscles).
