A pair of gorillas at a zoo left parents shocked as they decided to start doing it like they do on the Discovery Channel right in front of the kids.

When you take the kids to the zoo to see all the wonders of the animal kingdom you've always got to understand there's a risk that all creatures great and small will be up to some naughty antics.

Animals get up to all sorts whether we're watching them or not, though there are some encounters which can only really take place in the zoo.

You're unlikely to see an orangutan lighting up a cigarette out in the wild, for instance, and you probably wouldn't bring your whole family to get a close look at exactly what a gorilla sex session actually looks like.

However, that's what some unfortunate visitors to the zoo got as a pair of gorillas suddenly decided to mate in their enclosure in full view of everyone.

There was no real foreplay to warn parents what was about to happen as they pretty much just got into position and started going at it.

Thankfully it wasn't exactly a vigorous display of mating that might cause everyone at the zoo visiting the gorillas to look over and cause kids to ask mum and dad what's going on.

Zoo visitors could do little more than stare at the slowly shuddering arse of a male gorilla.

At one point one of the younger gorillas approached the mating pair, sitting right behind the male and even putting a hand on his backside, while thankfully blocking most of what was going on.

People visiting the gorillas at the zoo quickly twigged what was going on, with one person heard saying they'd 'seen too much' before continuing to see a whole lot more and joking they were watching a 'porno film'.

If you put animals together there's always a risk that they'll start banging, and if you put them together in a place people can come and see them like a zoo, then there's a risk they'll start banging in full view of people.

As for the sex, we might guess it wasn't all that good considering it lasted only a couple of minutes and both gorillas wandered off without further interaction afterwards.

Here at UNILAD we're not animal experts, but no post-coital cuddle and both gorillas just walking away from each other doesn't say great things.

Let's be fair, gorillas need love too and without other animals to interact with they get incredibly lonely, with some spending decades in captivity and suffering for it.
