‘Give it a rest son’: Grumpy gorilla dad puts up with son biting him

This little gorilla was snapped bugging his dad by giving him a nibble.

Much like human parents – gorilla dad Bantu’s patience seems stretched, but he doesn’t snap.

Instead Bantu pulls his mischievous son in for a tickle.

The pictures were snapped in Zoo Knoxville by Kelly Kearse, a high school science teacher.

She said: “I visit the Zoo on most weekends as there’s always something wildly fun happening there.

“Ubuntu sneaks up behind his dad,  Bantu and bites him, then Bantu spins him around for a fun tickle session.”
