Mountain Gorilla Takes a Selfie



Peter's Amsterdam-based production company traveled to Uganda this summer to make a virtual reality travel experience for Matoke Tours. The main focus of the project was to raise awareness about wildlife, and the elusive mountain gorilla in particular.

While filming during one of the treks, this young mountain gorilla grabbed the camera and filmed one of the first ever wild mountain gorilla selfies. Credit: YouTube/VR Gorilla
