An Unusual Friendship

A gorilla and a rabbit have become best friends at a zoo in America. They both live at Erie Zoo in Pennsylvania. The gorilla is named Samantha and she is 47 years old. She has been living alone because she doesn’t like living with other gorillas. Zoo keepers thought she might be lonely, so they introduced her to a small rabbit called Panda.


At first the zoo keepers kept them apart with a small fence, but they noticed that the rabbit and the gorilla were friendly towards each other. They removed the fence and now the couple enjoys spending time together. Panda regularly comes and sits next to Samantha. Samantha even shares her food with the little rabbit. Panda still has her own home. She can get away if she wants to, but at the moment they are getting on well together. Lots of people are going to see this unusual couple.
