Research reveals that chimpanzees are the closest relatives to humans. Gorillas are on the second spot on the list. The genetic makeup of a gorilla is almost 98% similar to that of human beings. So it doesn’t really come as a surprise that they share some common traits with us. They are definitely one of the most intelligent animals on earth. And even though some people might not agree, this video shows that they also have feelings and emotions.
Koko is probably one of the most famous gorillas on the planet. She has managed to learn a large number of hand gestures from a modified version of American Sign Language, and she also has lots of love to share. Koko adopted a pet kitten as her own when she was desperate to be a mom. But sadly, the cat was killed in an accident. What follows next is going to make you cry.
