Meet Shabani, a 19-year-old gorilla who’s been living at Higashiyama Zoo in Nagoya, Japan since 2007

He’s Dutch-born, Australian-bred, and 100% man

People in Japan have become so charmed by him, they call him ikemen – ‘handsome guy’

And, um… Can anyone blame them?


6

That brooding stare, those endless eyes, the way he struts around with so much confidence…


7

He’s even an entertainer!

Shabani went globally viral back in 2015, and though he’s kept it humble, he seems to enjoy the fame


9

He’s a western lowland gorilla, a critically-endangered species native to central Africa

They are often hunted for their skin and meat, or captured to be sold to zoos

Shabani was sent to Japan as part of a breeding program, and this hunk certainly did his part


12

After taking 2 lucky wives, Shabani now has 2 children, named Kiyomasi and Annie


13

Higashiyama Zoo even made him their official spokesman

Given his resemblance to certain famous faces, we see the appeal

After teaming up with Nagoya-based department store Parco, Shabani found his true calling – modelling
