The best way to beat the summer heat is air-conditioning and watermelon juice
By - 9999monkeys
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
i'm not 100% convinced that's not an intern in a gorilla suit
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.
the gorilla is an intern
But did he put the cap back on the bottle?
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.
>I call my brother an ape
He's an ape regardless of his bottle cap behavior.
We are all apes.
Some apes are more equal then others.
Some apes are more *apier than others.
> We are all apes.
You are now a moderator of r/GME
Not gonna lie, it was what I was invested in seeing when I watched it.
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.
And recycle it!?
No, because the recycling center doesn't want the caps put back on.
Beat me to it
We need to know!
He probably left it off so it would be easier for the weak humans to refill.
Water melon juice is the bomb.
In the heat of this **brutal** summer?! Hell yes it is!
Isn't the juice of a watermelon...water?
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.
I didn't think gorillas had that much fine motor control.
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.
Gorrillas can drive Tanks
Dudes an animal, but not an animal. Pinky out.
He's more human than most humans.
More human than human...
Than is correct...
Gentle you say.. [Here you go.](https://youtu.be/gR6MeFFzqQ8) I actually have a t-shirt with [this picture.](https://live.staticflickr.com/2126/2236095804_83d149f0e7_z.jpg)
Chug chug chug
Dude save some for later !
when your friend ask for a sip:
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.
Yes we had a common ancestor
Luca is a universal common ancestor but we have a much more recent common ancestor with gorillas.
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.
I couldn’t drink a whole bottle without dribbling a bit. Impressive!
Alot of these comments are killing me because I can relate hard 🤣
Not a freaking drop!! Lol
Me drinking Miller Lattes.
Waiting for the lip smack, and aaaahhhhh!
I woulda lost it tbh. "They really ARE like us" 🤣
But does he put the cap back on??
He has more manners then i have
Always nice to see an animal who is safe, content, and satisfied.
That stare at the end; I would take advice from that face.
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?
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 😢
They go wherever and usually on all fours not standing. They don't normally relieve themselves where they sleep, however.
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?
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
Mmm electrolytes, it's what plants need
It's what plants crave!
Water? Like from the toilet?
This gorilla is a dude
Does he close it back! I must know what happens next.
Woah its almost they're like humans
I was today years old when I learned that gorillas could drink from bottles
You know the phrase monkey see monkey do? It’s an incredibly accurate statement
Monkes are just humans but millions of years of evoultion before
King Kong is smart as hell!
He holding that water bottle like Shaq
It blows my mind that we keep zoos full of these fellas. Cruel.
Should we release them in Colorado?
I can't think of an invasive species I'd support more...
Imagine skiing and a gorilla comes out of the trees chasing you lol
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
Aren't they already released in Colorado? It would explain a thing or two...
to many predators man
bruh why did this get downvotes
I’m not sure. Gorillas really [like](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CEt8G-SAn0o) watermelon as a treat.
People rightly or wrongly assume he's calling black people apes because the also racist implication that black people love watermelon.
Lol fair enough.. a Schrödinger racist lol
I hope he recycles
I *really* don't like how dexterous they are
those darn *disposable* thumbs.
you can never have enough monkeys
Me after I gotta A+ on my math test
It can be really good watermelon juice brand commercial.
I just thought: "why do someone mix water with melonjuice? Isn't melonjuice just sugary water?" Till I read it again...
Is it bussin bussin?
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
This has happened, it didn't work out well. I believed they cancelled it due to concerns for the Orangutan.
that makes sense if there were problems, then I wouldn't want to hurt any animals
It was a Chimp, https://www.npr.org/2011/07/20/138467156/project-nim-a-chimps-very-human-very-sad-life
thanks I had never heard of this
Pretty comical this giant strong animal gently and delicately drinking from the small bottle
Mmmm watermelon juice sounds heavenly. 🦍 🍉 🧃
Didn’t spill a drop. I bet they get ice cream headaches too. Brain freeze.
Stay Hydrated this is a threat.
Looking like he’s getting ready for a championship boxing match
I expected a forehead bottle crush for some reason at the end of that
Lay off my mans. He just wanted his koolaid jammer.
I was today years old when I learned that gorillas are adorable when they drink from a water bottle.
He unscrewed the cap AND didn’t spill a drop!!
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.
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
Me at 3 am
Who else wants some watermelon juice now?
That’s a boy
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
Well, we *are* primates after all…
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
He'd rather have a 40.
I find this so strange that we overlook how similar we are to them
Did that gorilla just casually unscrew the top of that bottle? Were there some people trying to figure out about apes and tool use?
I love that he didn’t waste a drop.
Did y'all catch him grunt?? Hahaha my favorite part and will not miss it once you hear it.
That’s a great ape.
I thought people would be more amazed by the fact that he unscrews the bottle.
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?
Capri Sun next!
I guess i'm fucked up but i thought that was car cooling liquid in this bottle for a sec
Makes me sad. Such a beautiful, powerful animal, captured, drinking a highly processed red liquid.😞
is that 680ml or 1.5L?
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 :(
This guy is enormous, it's like he's downing a yakult.
Maybe don’t trap homeboy in a cage and leave him in the jungle
What a beautiful animal.
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
