    Gorillas from the Higashiyama Zoo and Botanical Gardens located in Chikusa-ku, Nagoya, Japan have gone viral on the Internet after a video of them watching a caterpillar was published online.

    Shabani, a silverback gorilla, and his son Kiyomasa have been captured on video patiently observing a moving caterpillar. The apes scrutinise the caterpillar in a funny way, giving all of their attention to the larva.

    When the leafworm comes a bit too close to the father's arm, he flicks it away into the grass; however, he is still fascinated by its moves.
