Now, just because an animal shares the same first letter as another animal does not mean they will necessarily get on. To demonstrate this fact I have a video to show you. It was taken at Sedgwick County Zoo in Wichita.
It features Barney the Gorilla and two, as yet unnamed Canada geese. Barney is a little jazzed off that these geese are nesting in his area so he takes a closer look.
I like this clip because the gorilla behaves pretty much the same as a human would if they got charged by a goose: you know swans can break your arm and a goose is kind of like a different coloured swan, they sound the same, I’m not risking it…. RETREAT! I love the way Barney beats his chest in a limp attempt to be macho as he’s back peddling out of there.
