What do you get when you mix a 450-pound silverback gorilla and a 0.5-pound wild bushbaby? Friends! While that is not always the case, for Bobo the gorilla who resides in a sanctuary at Ape Action Africa, there is nothing more delightful than spending two hours playing with the tiny primate. While doing their morning rounds, caretakers found Bobo cradling the bushbaby and handling them ever so gently. What a precious sight to behold!

The bushbaby clearly enjoyed the company of his new friend too as he returned back to Bobo’s hands after exploring the grass nearby. Even a few of the other gorillas in the group wanted to see Bobo’s new friend, but Bobo made sure the bushbaby remained at a safe distance. The sweet interaction lasted for two hours before Bobo took the little primate back to the safety of the trees. We guess the saying “opposites attract” really rings true in this case because although they are both primates, they are different in so many ways! Thank you, Ape Action Africa, for capturing these wonderful images to share with all of us!

Ape Action Africa works proactively to protect primates across Cameroon. They aim to address the immediate threats facing gorillas, chimpanzees, and monkeys while working with local communities to develop long-term solutions that will ensure their survival.
