    Gorillas are said to be highly intelligent and social. They are even considered quick learners and, as one of our nearest relations in the animal kingdom, tend to copy humans easily.

    A video of a gorilla imitating staff at the zoo has brought a well-needed smile to those who've viewed it.

    The, ahem, footage shared by Indian Forest Service officer Susanta Nanda on Twitter, shows the gorilla mimicking a zoo instructor doing a handstand on the other side of the glass barrier. Later, she rewards it with its favourite treat.
