Video of the Year: Wild Mountain Gorillas Sniff, Kiss & Groom Man’s Head

Watch this amazing chance encounter with a troop of wild mountain gorillas near Bwindi National Park, Uganda. Be patient for the first minute of the video, which is an introduction to the footage you’re about to see. It’s well worth the wait…I promise you’ve never seen anything like this.

He should have smooched in the air facing them to see what would happen... Bet at least one would have kissed him on the cheek..

How cool was that? I would have been scared and excited at the same time. These gorillas seemed so calm, like they were visiting an old friend. That was so cool.
