Being a Mom is a full-time job. Aside from being the responsible one, you are also a friend, a confidant, a guardian, a sister and so much more.
And one of the very important roles of moms is teaching the young ones how to behave the right way. This is not applicable to humans alone. Apparently, even animal Moms take the role of being disciplinarian from time to time.
Meet Ozala, a gorilla Mom. She’s not one to joke around with, especially when it comes to her young.
On a wintry day, just after the snow has fallen and froze over the wooden roof of their home, young Lope decided to scrape the ice and enjoy the cold feel of it in his mouth. The young gorilla is having such a great time on the roof! But that was until some more gorillas went up to enjoy the ice.
Mom Ozala and his baby brother, Schufai, went to share the roof with him, young Lope was visibly disappointed. He is not in the mood to share at all!
The young gorilla is clearly annoyed and to show his annoyance, he beats his chest repeatedly at his little brother. But still, the little guy does not want to leave the snow-filled place.
Lope did not stop at that. He clearly wants his little brother to go down from the roof so he tried pulling him off the platform.
Little Schufai was so scared of falling off that he immediately run to mom and hugged her. Yup, someone’s about to get in trouble!
True enough, Ozala decided to face young Lope, who instantly moved back when he saw the female gorilla approaching. Who would want to mess with an angry gorilla mom, right?
When Lope backed away, Ozala and Schufai enjoy the frozen snow together. They are having so much fun! And Lope is out of the way, so they can have the fun they wanted, right?
Oops, but Lope is not done with his tricks just yet. he really wanted to enjoy the frozen snow all by himself. So, he decided to give it another try.
Lope beats his chest at Ozala and Schufai, still wanting to claim the roof he initially discovered.
But, Ozala is not one to mess with. Seeing Lope and his chest beating, the angry gorilla mom made a move towards Lope, making him stay away from the two of them. Lope got scared that he ended up falling from the roof because he moved so far back from Ozala and Schufai. Poor Lope!
Well, that’s what he got from being defiant and not being able to share the roof with his little brother. Moms are serious about protecting their young ones, and this is true for all moms, whether humans or animals. The maternal instinct is not lost and this instinct is always geared to protect the weaker children who cannot protect themselves on their own.
We’re pretty sure Lope learned a huge lesson after this.
