UGANDA — You can teach a lot of animals tricks, but who knew taking a selfie would come naturally!

An adorable new YouTube video posted by VR Gorilla, shows a young gorilla grabbing a film crew’s camera which resulted in amazing footage.

In the video’s description, two filmmakers from Amsterdam, recently traveled to Uganda to capture animals and create a virtual reality safari experience with the help of Matoke Tours.  During one of VR Gorilla’s 360 recordings, “something spectacular happened.”

A young gorilla, of about three-years-old, steals the camera from the crew and starts to examine the device very inquisitively for several minutes. The camera was left rolling the entire time, and the close-up footage of the gorilla made for an incredible video.
