Gorilla brothers meet again - level 3, A12
A pair of gorilla brothers was separated for nearly 3 years after being sent to different zoos. The brothers who are 13 and 9 year old met again. They were very happy. This is what their keeper said about their meeting.
“The reaction between them straight away was fantastic, better than anyone expected. You know, there was a lot of touching through the cage, and sort of positive grumbling noises, no screaming or anything like that. So, within 24 hours we sort of thought, well everything looks so good, let’s open the door and see what happens and it was like they’ve never been apart.”
Interesting words: straight away (immediately), grumble (make a low continuous sound), be apart (not to be together).
