Picture Of Gorilla With Lack Of Pigmentation Proves How Strong Our Similarities Are

It's no news that humans and gorillas have many similarities. According to Wikipedia, the DNA of gorillas is highly similar to that of humans, from 95 to 99 percent, depending on what is included, and they are the next closest living relatives to humans after the chimpanzees and bonobos.


A picture, though, is worth a thousand words, and the image below shows exactly how strong the similarities between humans and gorillas are. It is a picture of a gorilla's hand. Anaka, the gorilla, lacks pigmentation; her unique skin allows us to see that her hand resembles a human hand.


When gorilla Anaka celebrated her sixth birthday on August 30, 2019, Zoo Atlanta posted photos on Facebook and fans responded with warm messages of best wishes and congratulations.



One picture, a close up of Anaka’s fingers, surprised many of her well-wishers that noticed the pink patch on the gorilla's skin and how similar her fingers are to a human’s. Gorillas have opposable thumbs, as do humans. Besides, primates have individual finger and toe-prints, which are sometimes also used for identification. Similar to humans, primates have nails, rather than claws, and use them for opening and scraping things and cleaning and scratching.


Zoo Atlanta explained that Anaka’s skin is as unique as her personality, as the gorilla often barks at her mother and others to get a prime spot for food, while she also likes riding piggyback on her siblings.
