From the Insider-

A Walt Disney World guest captured the moment a group of gorillas came across an unexpected guest in their enclosure last week.

On Thursday, the TikTok user @silkystrokesurvivor shared a clip of a gorilla at Animal Kingdom looking to its side before standing up to inspect a patch of grass. Another gorilla soon follows the first one and swats its hand at the ground. Someone behind the camera is then heard saying, “Oh, there’s a snake!”

You can then see the gorilla swatting at the reptile again before it slithers under the grass. Eventually, five gorillas, including the group’s silverback, surround the area to keep watch, and try to find the snake.

The video has become extremely popular on TikTok, where it has more than 11 million views at the time of writing.

It seems the gorillas were in no danger when the snake entered their enclosure.

In the background of the video, a Disney World Cast Member can be heard saying that the elder gorilla had joined the commotion to see “what’s going on” and ensure that his family “is not in any danger.” The employee also added that “like humans,” gorillas are “very curious” about what occurs in their habitats.

That curiosity is seen in a second video posted by the TikTok user, which shows some of the gorillas sitting in the grass, leaning toward the snake, and seemingly sniffing it.
