Oobee doo, I wanna be like you.

A SILVERBACK gorilla who walks like a man has become a big attraction at a wild animal park.

YouTube footage of Western lowland gorilla Ambam, aping humans with his walk, has been viewed over 250,000 times.

Gorilla keeper at Kent's Port Lympne wild animal park, Phil Ridges, said: "We think he might use it to get a height advantage to look over the wall when keepers come to feed him, and walking on two feet means he doesn't get his hands wet when it is raining."
