Gorillas In Enclosure Enthralled By Tiny Visitors

Gorillaliz1

This remarkable photograph was captured at a zoo by Reddit user iw3z. The Gorilla played with the little lizard, picking it up by its tail and poking it, but never killed it.

In a similar fashion, the Gorillas at Calgary Zoo showed great interest in a little caterpillar that came to visit. They did it no harm, preferring to just observe it.
