Guardabosques del Parque Nacional Virunga, en la República Democrática del Congo, compartieron una selfie en donde aparecen con dos gorilas hembras, quienes posan erguidas y miran hacia la cámara, imagen que se hizo viral en redes sociales.

Según el Parque Nacional Virunga, la fotografía es real y no se trata de un montaje; los hombres que aparecen junto a los animales, son Mathieu y Patrick, sus cuidadores.

Desde su publicación en Facebook, la imagen cuenta con 27 mil reacciones y se compartió 21 mil veces.

El Parque Virunga explica que las gorilas que están en la selfie, “siempre están actuando de forma atrevida”, por lo que la imagen es una “toma perfecta de sus verdaderas personalidades”.

You might have recently seen caretakers Mathieu and Patrick’s amazing selfie with female orphaned gorillas Ndakazi and Ndeze inside the Senkwekwe center at Virunga National Park. We’ve received dozens of messages about the photo. YES, it’s real! Those gorilla gals are always acting cheeky so this was the perfect shot of their true personalities! Also, it’s no surprise to see these girls on their two feet either—most primates are comfortable walking upright (bipedalism) for short bursts of time. Guys, if you shared our gorilla selfie post, please share our Earth Day posts as well! Conserving Virunga’s amazing wildlife is a constant challenge for the Park and our work wouldn’t be possible without your support. Matching funds have been pledged on every donation to the Park today, up to a total of $25,000—giving us the opportunity to raise $50,000 for Virunga! Visit or click the link in our bio to get involved and keep sharing our posts! Thank you! *We want to emphasize that these gorillas are in an enclosed sanctuary for orphans to which they have lived since infancy. The caretakers at Senkwekwe take great care to not put the health of the gorillas in danger. These are exceptional circumstances in which the photo was taken. It is never permitted to approach a gorilla in the wild. #gorillaselfie #gorilla #mountaingorilla #mountaingorillaselfie #selfie #earthday #earthday2019 #virunga #virunganationalpark #congo #drcongo #rdc #drc #protecttheplanet #happyearthday #wildlife #wildlifeconservation #conservation #natureconservation
