KENT, UNITED KINGDOM— As if humans needed more evidence to suggest they might have evolved from gorillas, a gorilla in the United Kingdom walks on only two feet.
Ambam, a gorilla at a British zoo, walks on his back two legs instead of what's known as “knuckle walking” or walking on all fours.
The gorilla keeper at the zoo said it runs in the family. He said Ambam's father would do the same when his hands were full. Ambam's sister and half sister also occasionally walk on their two hind legs.
