Girl Raised with 2 Gorillas, Sees Them in the Wild 12 Years Later. What Happens... Incredible

Conservationist Damian Aspinall has been raising captive gorillas and releasing them back into the wild for 15 years. He recently went back to the forests of West Africa to visit his old friends Djalta and Bimms, whom he had raised from babies and released into the wild a several years back.

Though Aspinall hadn’t seen the two gorillas for three or four years, they immediately came to the riverbank when Aspinall called to them. Djalta and Bimms welcomed their friend back with open arms— hugging, kissing, wrestling, tickling and playing with each other.

It was an absolutely joyous reunion, but Djalta was fixated one thing. She recognized Aspinall’s daughter Tansy who was in their boat. Tansy hadn’t seen the two gorillas for 12 years, but they recognized her instantly.

“I was considering whether it was safe for Tansy to come on land and see Djalta and Bimms,” Aspinall said.

And it absolutely was. The gorillas were so happy to see the girl they were raised with. The gorillas immediately go over to embrace their old friend Tansy in a truly beautiful reunion. Tansy, of course, stopped to take the “greatest selfie of all time” with her primate pals.

“It was lovely to see Tansy with her old friends,” Aspinall said.
