One fine day, Emmelina Austin visited the Franklin Park Zoo in Boston, unaware that she would form a good relationship with a mother gorilla named Kiki. The gorilla took her baby to meet Emmelina and her newborn baby Canyon on the other side of the glass.
As the Austin family was watching the gorilla show at the zoo, Kiki approached the observation glass. The gorilla mother’s reaction was adorable. She carefully observed the human child and then tried to caress the child through the glass screen.
Kiki then showed the Austin family her own baby, Pablo, a seven-month-old gorilla. The mother gorilla seemed to be delighted. Kiki was trying to communicate using her hands, and Pablo even pushed his face against the glass to get a better look at the human baby.
It was an emotional moment for the Austin family, with both Emmelina and her husband Michael moved to tears. Michael captured the stunning moment on camera, and the video of the incident went viral after it was posted online.
This video proves that a mother’s love is more than just loving her child. The way Kiki reacts to the human child with great affection describes this. The two parties stood on two sides of the glass reverently, enjoying this one-of-a-kind encounter for a few minutes. Kiki is definitely a caring gorilla and is attracted to babies.
Although the glass screen physically separated the two mothers, they could still unite their love for their children. As Emmelina held Canyon baby’s tiny hand on top of the glass at one point, Kiki tried to grab onto it. The Austin family will never forget this wonderful experience. Nothing compares to a mother’s unconditional love, and this video is all the proof you need.
