After two gorillas posed for what became the sassiest selfie on social media for a while, now an Instagram fanatic Chimpanzee has taken over social media. 

'Chimfluencer' as the internet fondly called the mammal, the Chimpanzee could be seen scrolling, swiping and savouring animal videos, from apes to snakes.   

Showing off his social media skills, the Chimpanzee looked completely engrossed in the app, as he swapped from one video to another.

Internet had a lot to say: 

Meanwhile, it was another work day for a park ranger in the Democratic Republic of Congo who shared a selfie of two gorillas that went viral. 

Mathieu Shamavu, a park ranger at Virunga National Park in the Democratic Republic of Congo, was at work when he snapped the photo with the hilarious primates and his co-worker, Patrick, the New York Daily Newsreported. Both female gorillas in the photo are named Ndakazi and Ndeze. They’ve resided at the Senkwekwe Centre for Gorilla Orphans since they were small, where they are cared for by many staff members.

On Monday, Virunga National Park shared the funny photo on their Instagram page to confirm that the “selfie encounter” was real. The image has generated more than 25,000 likes on the social media platform.

“Those gorilla gals are always acting cheeky so this was the perfect shot of their true personalities!” The park wrote on Instagram. “Also, it’s not a surprise to see these girls on their two feet either — most primates are comfortable walking upright (bipedalism) for short bursts of time.”
