They lean in curiously for a closer look, kind of how I imagine my grandmother would look at a computer screen or iPad. But they don't get too close -- the caterpillar needs his space, you know.
The average gorilla weighs 300-400 pounds (according to Wikipedia, anyway). The average caterpillar is way less (I tried to Google this, but no luck. Anyone?). Amazing how the big gorillas can be so sweet and enthralled by the little guy!
Thanks to Cutehead Lauren G. for sharing this cute gorillas watching a caterpillar video with us!
