Adorable moment two gorillas brothers are play-fight and hug
Adorable moment, two gorilla brothers are caught fighting and hugging in the Prague Zoo before being interrupted by an annoying silver back.
- Kiburi and his younger brother Ajabu were filmed by a client at the zoo.
- They were playing in their enclosure before having a tender hug.
- The apes were briefly interrupted by an unhappy adult male Silverback
The adorable moment when two young gorillas hug each other in a sweet hug has been captured in the film.
He was photographed by a visitor to the Prague Zoo earlier this week.
The brothers fought before and after their sweet moment.
Primates, including gorillas, have complex social structures and depend on physical contact to establish strong relationships.

Ajabu (pictured) and his older brother were seen running around the zoo and playing fighting
Zoo enthusiast and wildlife enthusiast Lucie Stepnickova photographed Kiburi and her younger brother Ajabu on January 26 at the Prague Zoo, Prague, Chech Republic.
After playing for a while, the primate couple takes a break from the fight and play to share a sweet hug.
Ms. Said: ‘Ajabu is very fond of Kiburi. He loves to play with him, although he usually receives some hard blows and, thanks to his brother, flies through the pavilion.
‘But it’s amazing to see Ajabu come to Kiburi after that, and snuggle together.
“Kiburi hugs him with tenderness and protection, taking care of his younger brother, who often falls asleep.”
Live males are seen fighting in their enclosure, using accessories such as a chest, logs and hammocks.
The images also capture the moment when a large male silverback gorilla approaches the brothers to interrupt their monkey business and end the fight.
The young people calm down instantly and separate when the adult male punishes them.

WHY DO PRIMARY NUMBERS DECREASE IN WILD?
A study published in January 2017 warned that for most of the 504 species of primates in the world, it is now ‘hour 11’ on earth, with almost two thirds in danger of extinction and 75 percent of declining populations .
Researchers have warned that the world’s primates are in danger from human activities.
Behind the collapse in numbers there is an increase in industrial agriculture, large-scale livestock, logging, oil and gas extraction, mining, dam construction and road construction.
The illegal trade in meat from wild animals (killing apes and monkeys for their meat) is also decimating animals, as well as changing climates and diseases that are transmitted from humans to apes.
Growing trees to produce palm oil, used in many popular foods, is a particular threat to primates in Indonesia, as is the extraction of gold and sapphires in Madagascar.
With many species living in rainforests, cutting down millions of acres of forest to meet the growing demand for wood or to clear land for agriculture is destroying their habitat and making populations more fragmented.
