Cheeky gorilla baby loves to wind up his dad

Lope the young gorilla has found the perfect way to wind up his poor dad, Oumbi.

Footage shot at Twycross Zoo in Leicestershire shows the kid sneaking up on his dad, stealing wood shavings and pinching him.

When Oumbi lies down to have his rest, Lope starts staring at him, first standing in front of him, then from under the hut. Beating his little chest, he keeps trying to elicit a reaction from the senior Silverback, who eventually tires of his son's antics and moves inside.

“When Lope and Oumbi stare at each other through the little gaps in the wall it's just hilarious,” said the filmer.
