“PRAGUE (AP) — Gorillas at Prague’s zoo are keeping cool during the European heat wave by eating sorbet.” notices seattletimes.com. The zoo’s eight Western lowland gorillas have been getting the treat almost every day during the summer in small plastic pots.Primate keeper Vit Lukas said that the zoo generally limits fruits with high sugar content, such as bananas and grapes, to prevent gorillas from getting obese.
In a clear hierarchy of the group, the seven remaining gorillas had to share the block of sorbet.
“Richard tolerates (Ajabu’s) close presence,” Lukas said. “But the ice cream belongs to him.”His 2-year-old son Ajabu tried to grab a bite from him, but ended up empty-handed.
