This gorilla - named Shabani - lives in Nagoya's Higashiyama Zoo and Botanical Gardens. Because of his expressive face, he's got a huge following.

Let's see how he's winning people over:

Pretty intense look, huh. It literally stuns a young gorilla.

Even well-known figures are talking about it. For example, a professional soccer player Yoshito Okubo claimed the gorilla is too handsome.

I've heard of this cool gorilla online, so I compared myself to him... I think he won.

Higashiyama Zoo and Botanical Gardens's tweet has also posted photo of Shabani when he was younger:

This is a photo of Shabani when he came to this zoo in 2007. At the time he seemed a bit un-dependable, but now he's a father.
