A little girl was pictured sharing a touching moment with a a baby western lowland gorilla at Fort Worth Zoo in Texas on Monday, May 23. Fort Worth Zoo shared the photo of the pair, five-month-old gorilla Gus and two-year-old girl Braylee, which showed them pressing their palms together on either side of the glass enclosure, to encourage other customers to share their own encounters with the animals.

“As he gets older, Gus is exploring more and more of the world around him, which includes encounters with new friends like Braylee of Fort Worth. Share your animal encounters with us via Facebook message and we’ll post some of our favorites” the zoo captioned the cute photo.
