A Timid Gibbon Needs Help From His Mom To Shoo Away A Wayward Rat

Nobody likes their home to be full of rats, even if they enjoy an indoor-outdoor lifestyle, so watching a gibbon struggle to get rid of a rat that has invaded his enclosure is something we can relate to.

Of course, if I were a gibbon I'd simply use my monkey kung fu skills to dispatch the rat and toss it to the nearest predator as an offering.

But the timid little gibbon in this video appears to have given up on his kung fu training- so he has to ask his mom for help.

This video was shot at the Birmingham Wildlife Conservation Park in the English West Midlands, which may explain why the gibbon is so timid- he's not used to roughing it among the rats!
