Two gorillas in Congo were ready to strike a pose for a selfie with a ranger from The Elite AntiPoaching Units and Combat Trackers at Virunga National Park.

“Gorillas typically move using their arms to ‘knuckle-walk’ as if they’re walking on all fours, but the Virunga National Park said it’s common for gorillas to walk with just their legs. The park is using the newfound viral fame from the image to encourage people to donate to help fund its services,” reports USA Today.
