Parents Horrified As Gorillas Engage In Oral Sex In Front Of Kids At Zoo
| Last updated
Parents have been horrified after their kids witnessed something very NSFW at the Bronx Zoo. Honestly, click on the link below and you'll see how.
As people were crowding around the facility's famed Congo Gorilla Forest, two inmates decided to get frisky.
One reportedly started performing oral sex on another ape and the romping happened literally right next to the window.
The person who took a video of the awkward moment told the New York Post: "I was shocked and had no idea that was a 'natural' act.
"I was in the gorilla exhibit with my 4-year-old daughter and niece. My wife had to stay out of the exhibit with my sleeping son, so I wanted to capture a lot of video. Then this magic happened."
Parents were heard yelling 'oh my god', 'oh no, don't look', and 'I don't know how we feel about that'; while others simply burst out laughing. You can check out the footage here.
The footage cuts off before anyone is able to see them doing it all the way until climax and, you know what, that's probably for the best.
Spokespeople for the Bronx Zoo declined to comment when approached by The NY Post.
This isn't the first time the zoo has inadvertently hosted a raunchy scene involving gorillas, with footage posted on social media seven years ago depicting something very similar.
But before you scream 'somebody think about the children', it's worth pointing out that this is perfectly natural in the wild.
Researchers have previously observed gorillas having sex for pleasure and the animal is described as non-monogamous.
A team led by Dr Cyril Grueter of the University of Western Australia, even discovered back in 2016 that some gorillas engage in same-sex intercourse just for the sheer thrill of it.
They were researching a group of apes during a trip to the Rwandan section of the Virunga mountain range in central Africa, where they saw 45 instances of two female gorillas going at it.
The team believed this happens if they get rejected by the males and therefore seek out a different type of sexual companion.
The Daily Mail even reports that some female gorillas have used sex as a weapon. Research has revealed these gorillas take down their enemies by using orgasms as a tactic to overpower their opponent.
The animal kingdom truly is a wild, wild place.
