Cats and dogs “react differently to people they know and like than people they don’t like” – It doesn’t seem like a big surprise that gorillas can too.

I remember a zookeeper telling this to me when we spoke together. She says that one of the gorillas she worked with just didn’t like a coworker (he never did anything, but was likely down to because the gorrila was male and so was the coworker so a dominance thing) but the gorilla loved the woman i was speaking too because she was the main worker who brought food to the group. Everytime she’d shout that fod’s coming they’d get exited but especially this gorilla and every time the man shouted that the foods coming, the gorilla would not be interested/not get exited
