i find it funny that he has even learned to do the 'double tilt' when you finish your water bottle. ​ once all the way up to drain it, then down to collect the juice in the bottom, then back up to drink the last few drops


9999monkeys

i'm not 100% convinced that's not an intern in a gorilla suit


timisher

Day 63 as a Disney wild kingdom intern. They still won’t let me take off the ape costume. I’m starting to forget what I look like…but this juice fricken rocks.


Cranberryboglake

the gorilla is an intern


Gurrier

But did he put the cap back on the bottle?


Ok_Dog_4059

I call my brother an ape for not putting caps back onto things even to put them in the fridge. Was really hoping to see if he put the cap back or not.


binarycow

>I call my brother an ape He's an ape regardless of his bottle cap behavior. We are all apes.


AllPurposeNerd

Some apes are more equal then others.


FirFlyNeo

Some apes are more *apier than others.


refreshfr

> We are all apes. You are now a moderator of r/GME


ForTheHordeKT

Not gonna lie, it was what I was invested in seeing when I watched it.


Gurrier

I know, right? Is he going to finish it? Is he going to leave some for later and cap the bottle? Oh, he's finished it, I wonder what he does with the cap... and it's over.


sativadaze

And recycle it!?


Blutarg

No, because the recycling center doesn't want the caps put back on.


DocMilkman

Beat me to it


Xeeroy

We need to know!


Infamous-njh523

He probably left it off so it would be easier for the weak humans to refill.


warpedlostaudio

Water melon juice is the bomb.


Theauthor_13

In the heat of this **brutal** summer?! Hell yes it is!


ripvannwinkler

Isn't the juice of a watermelon...water?


Infamous-njh523

I love the way he unscrews the top. You know darn well he could rip your head right off but he’s so “gentle “ opening that bottle.


Spiralife

I didn't think gorillas had that much fine motor control.


Snippy_Snallygaster

Just because they don't have human levels of fine motor control, a lot of people forget they still have it to an impressive degree compared to most other animals.

when your friend ask for a sip:


omarmad123

Underrated comment.


c12yofchampions

Little things amaze me. For example, when we drop something and within seconds can instinctively know where it's falling, reach down, and catch it almost every time. Watching this gorilla understand and unscrew that water bottle cap is one of those things. Insane how similar we are to these animals.


DystopianFigure

Yes we had a common ancestor


[deleted]

[удалено]


DystopianFigure

Luca is a universal common ancestor but we have a much more recent common ancestor with gorillas.


Limp_pineapple

LUCA represents the ancestor of all prokayotes and eukaryotes (4 billion years ago). The last common ancestor between us and gorillas, lived around 10-11mya.

nylady914

I couldn’t drink a whole bottle without dribbling a bit. Impressive!


omarmad123

Alot of these comments are killing me because I can relate hard 🤣


nylady914

Not a freaking drop!! Lol


nololoco

Me drinking Miller Lattes.


Rogg0721

Waiting for the lip smack, and aaaahhhhh!


omarmad123

I woulda lost it tbh. "They really ARE like us" 🤣


underwhelmingdonkies

But does he put the cap back on??


Nagisa139

He has more manners then i have


lodger238

Always nice to see an animal who is safe, content, and satisfied. That stare at the end; I would take advice from that face.


gingertrain77

You know, I've never seen a gorilla pee. Do they stand up and aim, do they have a ritual like dogs, or it just comes out in whatever position they happen to be in?


omarmad123

I have a feeling they kinda just go whenever nature calls like horses. I worked in yellowstone 3 summers and always cracks me up when someone's riding a horse and pony is just absolutely leaving a trail of no remorse 10 foot long shit-erooni. Such confidence 😢


vestigial66

They go wherever and usually on all fours not standing. They don't normally relieve themselves where they sleep, however.


KethupDrinker89

yldraziw

To someone who knows a little bit more than me: Do(can) external environmental influences (like learning how to unscrew a water bottle) co-opt and change neurogenesis within animal ecosystems? I.e we will most likely have an entire new generation of animals who have learned how to interact with basic human things and will eventually take that learning back to their species (so to say) we may get a new iteration of gorillas who may only want bottled water over wherever the currently get it from Or am I being a tad -pretend italics because mobile- crazy?


Awordofinterest

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bzx5zBNz_9A An orangutan watched humans cleaning with soap. These orangs took this back to the others and taught them how to do it and has been passed down a few generations. What about that bear that waved for the camera? Probably got a snack out of it once or twice so does it more often now. And the bears that know where the food is? Yup, In that bin over there. Why forage when we can dumpster dive. So yes. Certain animals have the capability of learning and copying human behaviours and passing on said behaviours. which may be an improvement to what they did before. But don't eat the soap. That's only if the young ones start swearing.


darkage_raven

Some of the greater apes have been known to steal tools and supplies to build their own little shelters. Like Hammers and nails and wood.


JeskaiBestGuy

Crazy. Most of them will never make it back to the wild, but also without a bunch of the object (lots of bottles of water in this case) there would be no practice.


yldraziw

Well we litter at a pretty tremendous rate, I'm sure there's a vector where animals naturally encounter water bottles and other such things. But yeah I guess crazy


JeskaiBestGuy

We don’t litter with things that are useful enough to teach behaviors. If we littered full water bottles then yes. But also don’t get defensive over the word crazy when you gave the 2 options. Best case scenario for the theory is monkeys find water bottles and use them to take water further away from natural sights which allows them to move a little further. But they would still have to figure them out on their own first.


Lithogiraffe

Mmm electrolytes, it's what plants need


ArchdukeValeCortez

It's what plants crave!


ec_on_wc

Water? Like from the toilet?


redtaildrummer

This gorilla is a dude


UnityIsPower

Does he close it back! I must know what happens next.


SpaGrapefruit

Woah its almost they're like humans


aliasani

I was today years old when I learned that gorillas could drink from bottles


makinishi_KINO

You know the phrase monkey see monkey do? It’s an incredibly accurate statement

caughtindesire

It blows my mind that we keep zoos full of these fellas. Cruel.


hokeyphenokey

Should we release them in Colorado?


caughtindesire

I can't think of an invasive species I'd support more...


jxl180

Imagine skiing and a gorilla comes out of the trees chasing you lol


caughtindesire

Makes me think of that SUPER old pc game where you ski down the snowy hill until an abominable snowman pops out n chases ya


B12e

Aren't they already released in Colorado? It would explain a thing or two...

bruh why did this get downvotes


JerichoJonah

I’m not sure. Gorillas really [like](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CEt8G-SAn0o) watermelon as a treat.


beartheminus

People rightly or wrongly assume he's calling black people apes because the also racist implication that black people love watermelon.

It can be really good watermelon juice brand commercial.


ApfelKraftMc

I just thought: "why do someone mix water with melonjuice? Isn't melonjuice just sugary water?" Till I read it again...


OreoCrustedSausageII

Is it bussin bussin?


-IGD-

dyo think if we brought up an orangutan or gorilla baby as a human one that it would be like an actual human, able to talk in one of our languages, able to do human actions, albeit a bit awkwardly


darkage_raven

This has happened, it didn't work out well. I believed they cancelled it due to concerns for the Orangutan.


-IGD-

that makes sense if there were problems, then I wouldn't want to hurt any animals

Pretty comical this giant strong animal gently and delicately drinking from the small bottle


silverfang789

Mmmm watermelon juice sounds heavenly. 🦍 🍉 🧃

Didn’t spill a drop. I bet they get ice cream headaches too. Brain freeze.

Lay off my mans. He just wanted his koolaid jammer.


jmhieg01

I was today years old when I learned that gorillas are adorable when they drink from a water bottle.


coughdrop2000

He unscrewed the cap AND didn’t spill a drop!!


ibnfahmi

I feel like if I saluted him, he will bring two cups and pour some for both of us, then he will tell me how his girl cheated on him with another male gorilla.


PensadorDispensado

hmmm monke.


PlayerSinceForever

Oh great. A prisoner ,never to be released, completely separated from its way of life. But he gets watermelon juice oh boy. You all suck


Lastmage22

Me at 3 am


spoikyvoid

Who else wants some watermelon juice now?


tryol2

That’s a boy


Poseidonram1945

I’m amazed at just how alike we are to primates. They’ve figured out (Or been shown) how to use a water bottle. Pretty amazing when you think about ut


MrWhiteTruffle

Well, we *are* primates after all…


OKsaving612

my man is smart enough to open the bottle he knows damn well that he’s a prisoner and thousands of people walk by and stare at him in his cage every day


tmsdave

He'd rather have a 40.


SableyeFan

I find this so strange that we overlook how similar we are to them


memilygiraffily

Did that gorilla just casually unscrew the top of that bottle? Were there some people trying to figure out about apes and tool use?


corgiLUVA

I love that he didn’t waste a drop.


Vigil_for_Truth

Did y'all catch him grunt?? Hahaha my favorite part and will not miss it once you hear it.


therealvanmorrison

That’s a great ape.

I thought people would be more amazed by the fact that he unscrews the bottle.

commonsensical1

Just think about this, This animal so smart enough to open a water bottle and keep the cap in his hand and drink it. You really think he isn't smart enough to know he is being held prisoner and isn't free?


cmon_get_happy

Capri Sun next!


Likkyh

I guess i'm fucked up but i thought that was car cooling liquid in this bottle for a sec


Tricky-Trick1132

Makes me sad. Such a beautiful, powerful animal, captured, drinking a highly processed red liquid.😞


Organic-Breakfast-70

is that 680ml or 1.5L?


Kirdomnin

It's all nice and all until you get your sense of taste completely fcked up by covid and watermelons start to smell like damp dusty pillow. It kinda sucks to not be able to enjoy watermelons :(


CookieCutter9000

This guy is enormous, it's like he's downing a yakult.


NathansRadical

Maybe don’t trap homeboy in a cage and leave him in the jungle


walkie73

What a beautiful animal.


vennexx1

Chase that with a 5th and watch the fun lol.

Give that man a 2liter and it would be the equivalent to a regular 16oz bottle for us
