This little gorilla was snapped bugging his dad by giving him a nibble.
Much like human parents – gorilla dad Bantu’s patience seems stretched, but he doesn’t snap.
Instead Bantu pulls his mischievous son in for a tickle.
The pictures were snapped in Zoo Knoxville by Kelly Kearse, a high school science teacher.
She said: “I visit the Zoo on most weekends as there’s always something wildly fun happening there.
“Ubuntu sneaks up behind his dad, Bantu and bites him, then Bantu spins him around for a fun tickle session.”
