'Parrot, Meet Gorilla': African Grey Parrot and Gorillas Introduced at Zoo Atlanta

An African grey parrot and a pair of western lowland gorillas met at Zoo Atlanta in Georgia, with the rainforest natives staring each other down.

Footage shows Larry, the parrot, taking a good look at gorillas Andi and Merry.

“Parrot, meet gorilla,” wrote the Zoo. “African grey parrots and western lowland gorillas share rainforest habitats in parts of Africa, but Larry had never seen a gorilla — and vice versa — until a recent chance encounter with Andi and Merry!” Credit: Justin Eckelberry/Zoo Atlanta via Zoo Atlanta Facebook via Storyful
