This Is Probably The Most Handsome Gorilla You’ve Ever Seen (17 pics + 1 gif)

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?

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

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

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

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

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
