Instagrammers, stop taking selfies with gorillas, you’re giving them COVID-19
The chase for likes on social media brought us many irrational and dangerous behaviors. One of them is approaching wild animals in order to take a selfie.

Animatronic ape spycam captures wild gorillas singing and their uncontrollable flatulence
Nature is a mixture of equal parts of wonder and hilarity. If anything personifies this statement, it’s these gorillas, who were captured singing during dinner by an animatronic ape camera, designed to blend in and be accepted into their family for the upcoming PBS series Nature: Spy in the Wild 2. It’s the same series for which the Hummingbird drone was developed.
It would see a beautiful side of gorilla hierarchy, offer some insight into their personalities and interactions, monitor their behaviour, perhaps observe things we haven’t seen before. Like, the non-stop uncontrollable farting due to the 40lbs of food they eat each day!
