A 25-STONE gorilla gazes adoringly at a tiny wild bush baby — who is barely as big as the gorilla's finger.

He then gently placed it back in a tree at Mefou Primate Sanctuary, in Cameroon, so it could continue its journey. A park spokeswoman said: “On his morning checks, our gorilla caregiver discovered Bobo cradling a young, wild bush baby. “The bush baby had probably been living inside the gorilla’s enclosure, which is covered in trees, or just outside the fence line, as the area surrounding it is forest. “The bush baby showed no fear of Bobo – moving around his body and spending time hopping around in an open grassy area, before choosing to return to Bobo.
