Visitors to Paignton Zoo are being entertained by one of the residents -who's taken to pulling faces.
Kiondo, a 14-year-old Western Lowland Gorilla continues to stick his tongue out at anyone who passes - amusing visitors with his antics.
Bemused keepers say they don't know what the 186 kilo gorilla means by the gesture.
But, unlike most parents, who try to teach their children sticking out their tongue is rude, we'd challenge anyone to tell this gorilla what to do!
Gorillas use all their senses to communicate. They grunt, rumble, adopt various body postures and pull faces to indicate mood.
Time's running out if you wanted to name Paignton Zoo's new baby giraffe.
The female calf was born last month and staff captured the whole experience on camera.
The zoo has come up with a shortlist of ten names, including Afya, Florrie and Kaleena, and people have to vote by this Sunday.
The zoo is part of the European Endangered Species Programme for the Northern giraffe, which is classified as endangered.
