Awkward Moment A pair of randy gorillas shocked families with an X-rated sex show at a zoo.
The videographer captured the raucous exchange during a visit to the Bronx Zoo with his family.
Footage shows the gorilla performing oral sex on its partner, while the red-faced parents gasp, and quickly turn their babies away.
And despite the shock of onlookers, animal experts claim this was completely normal.
The one who captured that moment told New York Post: “I was shocked and didn’t know it was a ‘natural’ act.
“I was at the Gorilla Exhibition with my 4-year-old daughter and niece.
“My wife had to be out of the exhibition with my sleeping son, so I wanted to make a lot of videos. Then this magic happened.”
The outlet reports that contrary to popular belief, oral sex among animals is fairly common, with cheetahs, bears and bats getting into the act.
In fact, many species have sex for pleasure, like bonobos – known as “hippie apes” for their notoriously awkward sex lives.
Steven D., professor of psychiatry and behavioral medicine at the Medical College. Pinkerton, “While chimpanzees show little variation in sexual function, bonobos behave as if they have read the Kama Sutra—can exhibit every position and variation.” Confirmed in the book Sexual Nature / Sexual Culture, Wisconsin.
This isn’t the first time an emotional moment from the animal kingdom has been caught on camera.
Back in April, This Morning fans were left in stitches as a pair of deer started having sex live in the air.
Josie Gibson was at the Wild Places project in Bristol to be the zookeeper for the day before the zoo reopened.
