Gorillas kinda scare me. And fascinate me. I kinda want to be one. They’re crazy-strong and they have really neat faces that mostly resemble grumpy old people. What’s not to like?
Plus, they smile! Which indicates that humans aren’t the only animals who do that as a pure reaction to something making them happy (as opposed to a facial cue to send a message to the animals around them). How cool is that? Happy gorillas. Not just content because they just had a good mango, but honestly delighted to the point of not being able to control their facial expressions. Which is fantastic.
