Although the world insists on seeing the differences that exist between men and animals, giving the former a position of superiority, a beautiful scene that occurred in a zoo shows us that before the call of love we are all equal.
A gorilla mother and her little baby starred in the most beautiful encounter with a young couple who were visiting the zoo with their little one-month-old infant.
The most beautiful meeting between two mothers of different species.
The event took place a week ago at the Franklin Park Zoo in Boston (United States), when the spouses Emmelina Austin and Michael Austin decided to spend a different afternoon with their little baby named Canyón.
Everything was going normally, amid the laughter of the parents in love, but when they reached the gorilla area, something completely caught the attention of Emmelina and Michael.
She decided to introduce her baby to the gorilla named Kiki and was impressed by the reaction.
It seems that Kiki had got on perfectly with Emmelina and fell in love with little Canyon. But in addition to this, like every proud mother, the mother decided to display her son.
The little gorilla named Pablo was also in the place and was shown by Kiki with the same love with which Emmelina displayed her baby.
The moment was quite peculiar for everyone.
The encounter seemed like a reunion in the park between two friends who hadn’t seen each other for a long time, and, as expected, Michael was also impressed with Kiki’s reaction and intelligence.
“My wife mentioned that she felt she could understand their bond and see how much she cared for Pablo, since she is now a mother. My wife picked up our son to show him to Kiki, who was on the other side of the compound… Then Kiki grabbed Pablo and put him on his leg to take him to Emmelina, ”said Michael.
Despite language barriers, both mothers managed to connect and perfectly enjoy the moment. Once the families were face to face, Emmelina and Kiki were left contemplating in their roles of mother, while gesturing with their hands.
Somehow, the gorilla was communicating and made the woman feel the emotion of that beautiful encounter. It seems they both established a maternal friendship and confidentiality right away.
Kiki melted with love for the human baby.
Not only did Kiki enjoy the talk, but little Pablo was also excited to meet his human friends.
“[Kiki] was talking to us with her hands. Pablo even pushed his face to the glass at one point and they saw him, noses touching, together. My wife and I had tears in our eyes, ”Michael said.
This is not the first time that an animal of this species is carried away by its feelings of motherhood, because in the past we saw how an orangutan got emotional in front of a pregnant woman.
Michael decided to record Kiki’s reaction and this is a heartwarming video.
