Gorilla breaks glass at Nebraska Zoo

Gorilla break glass at Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium in Omaha, Nebraska – Caught on Camera!

OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) – A video of a gorilla at Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium has gone viral.

Zoo Curator, Dan Cassidy, says with three gorillas, aged 17 to 22 trying to establish dominance in the same space, they’re bound to see testosterone and aggression as these gorillas transition into adulthood.

In the video you can see the reflection of a little girl pounding on her chest as she looks at the male gorillas. One of the gorillas, known as “Kijito”, charges to the glass and breaks through the first of three layers of protective glass.

The zoo says this isn’t the first time they’ve seen this before. It’s common for the glass to break because of environmental or engineering causes. Gorillas also beat on the glass to makes sounds that scare off their peers.

Curators say while the gorilla did break through a layer of glass, the zoo checks and replaces the glass frequently.

The three gorillas in the exhibit are currently transitioning from blackbacks to silverbacks, as they enter into manhood. ​

  1. This is disgusting, poor animals locked up and being taunted by children. They should be free and IN THE WILD. If you go to zoo’s you are apart of the problem.

  2. They should have used **Gorilla Glass** AAAAHAAHAAHAHAHAHAHAAAHAAHA!!! And is it really transitioning into "manhood" or is it more like "Adult hood?." Ditz!

  3. Girl challenges gorilla to a fight; gorilla accepts challenge. I hope that the zoo made that girl’s family pay for the damage that she caused.

  4. if we want we could see the gorilla living free in the wild why we have to keep them in jail to watch them, fucking greedy people they only want money

  5. The original video has the comments turned off because the dudes pissed everyone called out his daughter for throwing up chest bumps.

    why does she get away with saying these, this has nothing to do with the issue and is sexism towards males.
