Two gorillas have been photographed posing for a relaxed selfie with the rangers who rescued them as babies.
The image was taken at a gorilla orphanage in Virunga National Park, DR Congo, where the animals were raised after poachers killed their parents in 2007.
Because they’ve grown up with the rangers who rescued them, Innocent Mburanumwe, deputy director of Virunga said “they are imitating the humans” – and standing on two legs is their way of “learning to be human beings”.
But it “doesn’t happen normally”, he said.
“I was very surprised to see it… so it’s very funny. It’s very curious to see how a gorilla can imitate a human and stand up.”
