Gorilla Photobombs Kids At Australia Zoo (PHOTO)

While visiting a zoo in Australia, a pair of sisters got a special treat when a gorilla decided to join them in a family photo.

Ella O'Brien, 6, and her 4-year-old sister Bridget were visiting the Werribee Open Range Zoo near Melbourne when a 29-year-old silverback gorilla named Motaba reportedly photobombed them.

"It would appear that this gorilla is simply bananas for bananas! Motaba the gorilla was sent into a frenzy at the Werribee Open Range Zoo…after she spotted two young visitors with her favorite snack," said the caption that accompanied this Rex USA photograph.

This, of course, isn't the first time that animals have thrilled us with their photobombing skills. From cats to sloths, there have been plenty of creatures that have induced laughs and smiles thanks to their unexpected photo cameos.

Though it appears that this photobombing gorilla is the real deal, past experience has proven that all photobombing superstars should be taken with a pinch of salt.

What do you think? Is Motaba the latest photobombing queen of the animal kingdom or is this a brilliant use of Photoshop? Tell us below!
