Congo park ranger takes viral selfie with gorillas
LONDON (AP) -- A park ranger in Congo captured a selfie with two female gorillas that went viral.
Mathieu Shamavu, a ranger at Virunga National Park in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, said when he was checking his phone, he noticed two orphaned gorillas mimicking his movements, so he took a picture with them.
The gorillas look as if they're posing for the camera, and when Shamavu posted the picture on social media on April 20, it quickly clocked up thousands of likes and comments.
As the gorillas arrive in the sanctuary at a young age, they learn from their caretakers, said Shamavu.
Virunga management said the park is the only place in the world dedicated to the care of orphaned gorillas.
