In this video, I'm trying to coax the baby gorilla from the den. A sleeping silverback in the background eventually wakes up and doesn't like me being so close... and lets me know it by charging from the den and taking a stance that says "I'm in charge here!" The noises you hear are the guide signaling to the silverback that we are no threat and the silverback eventually sits down and begins eating.
