Here’s Proof That Evolution Is A Fact,Not A Theory!!!…Ambam The Gorilla,Stands Up And Walks Like A Man!!!

A lowland silverbacks gorilla who resides in a Zoo in the U.K, is proving once and for all that Charles Darwin’s controversial theory of evolution is a fact of nature, and not fiction,by mastering the unusual behavior of standing and walking upright on his hind legs, just like a man!…

Ambam,21, a Western lowland gorilla, has become a you tube viral video hit, and a crowd favourite at England’s Port Lympne Wild Animal Park after being filmed sauntering around  his enclosure on his hind legs.(MSNBC)

Phil Ridges, Ambam’s keeper, said it was “not a novelty” for park staff as gorillas were sometimes known to walk in this way,but is rarely seen by the general public walking around in this manner.(Source)

Many observer’s notice Ambam developing a certain “swagger” with his walk, and think that he is picking this mannerism up by copying the staff and his keepers there…or he has seen the movie “Planet Of The Apes”, and knows his kind will eventually win?!?!(Source)


...Is this where we are heading with the walking, and maybe..talking Ambam the gorilla!?!?

(See “Planet of the Apes” Classic ending)

It should be noted that all gorillas are able to walk on their hind legs to some extent,but choose not to.

Ambams’ father and sister walk upright as well, but they do not live together!(Source)

Ambam’s choice to walk upright has given him a distinct advantage in grabbing food that might be at a higher level that he can reach quicker standing up, than his fellow apes that choose to remain hunched over, and accept the low hanging fruit, that falls after Ambam grabs the best one’s first.(Source)

It is evolution.(Wiki)

Two processes are generally distinguished as common causes of evolution. One is natural selection, a process in which there is differential survival and/or reproduction of organisms that differ in one or more inherited traits.(Source)

Charles Darwin

When fish were swimming and food was falling from the trees for them to eat, their limited ability to only swim did not hamper their survival in any way…but when the foo stopped falling from the trees, and needed to be plucked,there became a need to be able to breathe on land for a while, and climb up the tree to get the food.(The evolution of fish)

Those that did that,lived, and those that could not adjust and do that, died off….(Video)

Another cause of evolution is a genetic drift, a process in which there are random changes to the proportions of two or more inherited traits within a population.(Source)

Ambam’s behavior of choosing to stand up to grab the best food,is the basic tenet of Darwin’s theory of ‘Natural Selection” for survival in action.


Pretty soon, tall the male gorillas in Ambam’s clan will have to stand up and walk, just to maintain their respect, or AmBam will dominate them all.He will be bigger and stronger than the rest, simply because of his lead position to grab the best food.(Source)

The next stage in their evolution will be reasoning, and speech….then it’s on!!!

  1. Not the first nor the most conclusive proof, the Lenski E Coli experiments ongoing since the late 80s have empirically proved that evolution is a fact. Still this is far more cool to watch 🙂

  2. You’re preaching to the choir, but I don’t know if this is the definitive proof you are looking for.
