Gorilla Reunion — 2 Brothers See Each Other After Years Apart [7 Pictures]

Kesho and his younger brother Alf were separated when Kesho was moved to Dublin more than two years ago. But recently they were reunited at Longleat Safari Park.

Longleat zookeeper, Mark Tye, said:

The keepers from Dublin weren’t entirely sure the brothers would even know each other, but the moment they met you could just see the recognition in their eyes.

And ape expert Ian Redmond commented…

What you’re seeing is exactly what you think you’re seeing — Two intelligent social mammals, who were separate, are pleased to see each other again and play together. It is gorilla joy, being reunited with someone you used to have good times with and now you can again, so it’s gorilla happiness.
