Although the staff thought the two wouldn’t recognize each other, once they met, they were hugging, laughing and giving each other plenty of handshakes.

This heartfelt moment was captured on camera by the park staff and shared online for everyone to enjoy. Mark Tye, the keeper of the two gorillas had this to say: “We weren’t entirely sure that the brothers would even know each other, but the moment they met you could just see the recognition in their eyes.”

He also went on to say: “They were very animated and there was a lot of rough and tumble on the floor. It is quite unusual to see that sort of childlike behavior in a silverback.”
