WATCH: Gorilla Caught Mimicking Young Boy Behind Glass At Missouri Zoo

Monkey see, monkey do, right? That's how the old saying goes, and it appears it's not just a saying!

(Now, I'm aware that gorillas are apes, not monkeys, but the expression worked better here.)

A Missouri Mom captured and posted this viral video of a female gorilla interacting with her young son at a local zoo.

Whatever the little boy was doing, the gorilla behind the glass certainly took note. As the mother prompts the boy to repeat his motions, the little boy begins playfully making fists and banging on his chest, as apes seemingly do in all the movies.

That's when the gorilla watching the boy mimics his motions, making gentle fists and hitting them on her chest.
