Massive Rescued Gorilla Has Unlikely Friendship With Tiny Wild Bush Baby

There have been a variety of unlikely pairings throughout the years, and the ones that involve wildlife are genuinely breathtaking. Take a friendship between a 450-pound gorilla and a half-pound wild bush baby, for example.

Ape Action Africa, Cameroon is a sanctuary that is dedicated to helping protect and conserve endangered primates, including apes, monkeys, and chimpanzees. One of their rescues was a kindhearted Western Lowland Gorilla named Bobo.

Bobo is a friendly gorilla who loves to spend time with other wild creatures, including a tiny wild bush baby. It was shocking to those working at the sanctuary to see that there was no fear between the two opposite animals.

These best buds enjoy rolling around in the grass together, and the wild bushbaby even helps groom the massive gorilla. A staff member has said, “We have never witnessed a wild primate interacting with a rescued one at Mefou Sanctuary.”
