What could possibly be more fun for a kid than going to the zoo to watch the animals play? Going to the zoo and playing with the animals!

That's what mom Sherry Chute learned when her 2-year-old son, Isaiah, met a 2-year-old gorilla named Kamoli at the Columbus Zoo & Aquarium in Ohio last week.

Sure, there was a thick glass barrier between the two, but that didn't stop them from having an adorable game of peek-a-boo.

Chute told the Columbus Dispatch that after the toddlers wore each other out, Isaiah looked back at his new friend and simply said, "Bye, gorilla!"
