It’s not a secret that gorillas and humans are pretty alike, after all, we’re sharing more than 90% of DNA! That being said, we rarely compare ourselves to them, perceiving gorillas as somewhat intelligent primates, but no more than animals. Here comes Anaka, a cute gorilla from Zoo Atlanta, that has recently taken over the internet with her unusual exceptionally human-like hand. She’s a reminder that we are all connected in ways humans can’t really fathom on a broader scale than any of us thought possible.
Not long ago gorilla named Anaka celebrated her 6th birthday in Zoo Atlanta. The zoo workers are fond of Facebook just as much as anyone of us, so they clicked a few shots of the happy occasion and posted them on the Zoo Atlanta FB page.
Everyone was happy to see the cute gorilla and her family, but what really amazed Facebook users were Anaka’s fingers. Yep, this absolutely normally-looking young gorilla has some pretty outstanding fingers that lack pigmentation. As a result, they look startlingly human, which came as a surprise to most people.
