Huge Silverback Gorilla Stops Traffic So His Family Can Safely Cross

Digital photographers shooting a BBC Earth program caught the incredible moment a Silverback gorilla stopped traffic so his family can safely cross the road.

Over 11 million people have actually watched the old BBC Earth video clip below because it was recently reposted on Twitter.

It reveals a huge silverback gorilla that stops in the middle of the road, acting as a protective barrier between the cars and his family who are crossing the road.

The Alpha Gorilla displays his protective instinct for his family as the onlookers take photos of this uncommon occasion.

The silverback really did not relocate until every member of the family had crossed over.
