Gorilla Walks Upright Like A Human ★★★





A Western Lowland Gorilla has charmed the world with his rare and unique talent of walking upright

like a human. Western Lowland Gorillas usually live in the densest and most remote rainforests

in Africa. They live in the smallest groups of all gorillas usually consisting of about four to

six members. The leader of the group, the silverback, organizes most group activities.

They are quickly becoming endangered though as their numbers have declined by almost

60 percent over the last twenty years. These are the gorillas most frequently found in zoos.



While gorillas have been known to stand on occasion they usually don't walk very far.

Ambam seems to have worked hard at perfecting his skills overtime and seems to walk

with ease over considerable distances.



His unique skill has made him an internet sensation, and many have flocked to the wildlife

park located in the UK to see him in person.

100 Year Old Optical Illusion Stirs Up The Internet





This 100 year old optical illusion recently created a stir on the internet.

It's known as an ambiguous image optical illusion, an image that can depict

two different pictures.

First published in 1892 in a German humor magazine it's the oldest known

depiction of an ambiguous optical illusion image.

Research by psychologist Joseph Jastrow showed that the faster

you can see the second animal, and how quickly you can switch between the

two, the quicker your brain works and the more creative you are.
