Crazy Video This Intense Gorilla Fight Left Zoo Visitors a Bit Rattled
A video at a Nebraska zoo captured two silverbacked gorillas engaged in a brief but intense sparring match.
The video was shot at Omaha's Henry Doorly Zoo & Aquarium back in October, but is just catching on now.
The action starts around the :32 mark, when one gorilla crosses in front of the other, leading that one to charge and collide into him. The two shove and swipe at each other for about 15 seconds before one of the apes backs off.
Someone can be heard saying "No, no, no!" and "Where are the zookeepers?"
A supervisor told the Omaha World-Herald that the tussle was really nothing to worry about.
"It looks like a big battle," said Dan Houser, the zoo’s curator of large mammals, "but on the gorilla scale, it’s no more than one kid pushing another kid."
