Anti-poaching rangers have shared a series of incredible selfies posing and relaxing with the gorillas they risked their lives to protect.
Proud to stand next to the survivors, in one selfie, a young man contains a grin, as he stands next to a gorilla on its legs, appearing very much like a human.
The gorillas, he added, think of the rangers as their parents. "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".
Their pose, however, also suggests that they're "learning to be human beings", Virunga National Park deputy director Innocent Mburanumwe told BBC News.

Golden Knights Coach Calls Sharks Coach ‘A Clown’ Ahead Of Game 7
It was the third-latest tying goal in a Game 7 in National Hockey League history but it wasn't enough for Vegas. But the Golden Knights didn't go away and got the equalizer with Fleury pulled in the final minute.
But these two gorillas prove anyone can do it, with a little attitude.
The photo, which features ranger Mathieu Shamavu in the foreground and two good-natured gorillas casually posing behind him, was originally posted on The Elite AntiPoaching Units and Combat Trackers' Facebook page on April 18 and has since been shared over 1,000 times.
In another, they were seen cuddling up to one of the rangers named Patrick Sadiki.
The picture was taken at Virunga National Park - a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
As for the photo, the Virunga National Park said in a Facebook Post, "We want to emphasize that these gorillas are in an enclosed sanctuary for orphans to which they have lived since infancy".
Being a ranger, however, is not always fun - it is mainly unsafe work.
