        Zoo staff say that a tightrope walking gorilla's attempts to impress the ladies apppear to have paid off. Kidogo has been accepted as a mate by both of the females in his enclosure since his high wire display at Germany's Krefeld Zoo.

        Zoo spokeswoman Petra Schwinn added: "It's too early to see if the pairing will result in offspring immediately but we are optimistic, a pregnancy takes almost nine months in gorillas, similar to humans, but we will know more in a few months.

        She added: "We have observed he really seems to prefer walking upright like a human, we think he might be copying the visitors. And because he wants to show whose boss he's showing that he can do it better than we can - by walking on a high wire. He really is a unique animal."

        The tightrope had been intended for him to hang from but keepers were amazed when he climbed up and began walking on it instead.

        Impressive.

        Omg that is wayyyy too cute! And walking upright to imitate humans is adorable. He won't have to climb any tall skyscrapers to land a hot chick!
