Walking gorilla is a YouTube hit


A silverback gorilla who walks upright like a human has become a big attraction at a wild animal park in Kent.

The male, called Ambam, has become something of a celebrity at Port Lympne near Hythe, where he amuses keepers and visitors.

Phil Ridges, Ambam's keeper, said it was "not a novelty" for park staff as gorillas were sometimes known to walk in this way.
