Jelani is a silverback gorilla at Louisville Zoo, Kentucky, that likes to see exactly what visitors have been up to by sitting next to the glass and taking a look at their photos on their smartphones. Video editor Paul Ross recently spotted Jelani taking a look through a young man's smartphone at all the pictures and even telling him when to move to the next picture!
