Wise Gorilla Goes Viral After It Is Photographed Lecturing to a Crowd of Zoo Visitors
The photo started off as a promotional image for a summer event at the Los Angeles Zoo, but the ape quickly garnered the nickname, "TED Talk Gorilla."
Listen up — this gorilla’s about to drop some knowledge.
Yet another gorilla is becoming an internet sensation after the primate was photographed giving what appears to be a lecture to a bunch of bystanders.
Kelly, a 30-year-old male western lowland gorilla, was actually catching a treat keepers tossed when the picture was taken, a spokesperson with the Los Angeles Zoo Association told InsideEdition.com.
"Kelly is a funny boy – big and impressive," zookeeper Nancy Bunn said. "He acts stand-offish at first, then warms up to a crowd. If there is food involved, he becomes a real ham for the keeper."

Another Twitter user even referenced another gorilla that went viral last week for splashing around in a kiddie pool.

Zola, the 14-year-old western lowland gorilla at the Dallas Zoo, was seen in a video last week to show he is enriched and comfortable, the zoo said.
