Women flock to Japan zoo to see 'hunky' gorilla
TOKYO: A giant gorilla with brooding good looks and rippling muscles is causing a stir at a Japanese zoo, with women flocking to check out the hunky pin-up.
东京：一头忧虑美貌、肌肉滾滾的巨型大猩猩，在一家日本动物园引发了骚动 - 妇人们结伴相拥而至，一睹这尊招牌猛男。
Shabani, an 18-year-old silverback who tips the scales at around 180 kilograms (400 pounds), has become the star attraction at Higashiyama Zoo and Botanical Gardens in Nagoya, striking smouldering poses the movie model in "Zoolander" would be proud of.
"He often rests his chin on his hands and looks intently at you," zoo spokesman Takayuki Ishikawa told AFP on Friday.
“ 他常把下巴搁在双手上，对你凝视，” 动物园发言人Takayuki Ishikawa星期五告诉法新社说。
"He is more buff than most gorillas and he's at his peak physically. We've seen a rise in the number of female visitors - women say he's very good-looking."
“ 他比绝大多数大猩猩更加健美，正处在体能高峰阶段。我们观察到女性参观人数有上升 - 女人们说，他非常好看。”
Shabani, who has been at the zoo since 2007, shot to fame after being made the campaign model for the zoo's spring festival earlier this year, Ishikawa said, adding that the ape's paternal skills are also a big hit with women.
"He's a father and he always protects and looks over his children," he said. "Zoo-goers think his kindness is attractive too."
“ 他是个父亲，始终护卫、巡视着自已的子女，” 他说。“ 动物园参观者认为他的善良也很引人。”
Women have taken to social media to swoon about Shabani's rugged looks, describing him as "Ikemen" or a hunk - and likening him to a male model.
女人们登上社交媒体来表达对沙巴尼硬汉外表的痴醉，形容他为“Ikemen”，或说'猛男' - 並把他比作男模。
A recent flurry of tweets has made Shabani a national celebrity, with Japan's broadcasters NHK and NTV featuring the gorilla on popular shows.
最近一通推特把沙巴尼造成了全国名人，日本广播公司NHK 和 NTV 也在热门节目中专题介绍了这只大猩猩。
"He will look you in the eye and sometimes if you're taking photos it will look like he's posing for you like a model," said Ishikawa. "But he's the head of a group of five gorillas so it's likely he's just watching out for them and keeping an eye on you."
“ 他会直视你的眼睛，有时，如果你在拍照，那就象他是位模特，在为你摆姿势，” Ishikawa 说。“ 但他是5只大猩猩组群的首领，所以很可能，他只是在为它们密切观察，並对你时时留意。”

The trick is in having them approach you!
Why are all the women after the "father" Gorilla? Don't they know to keep off a family man?
According to some reports, Japanese men are going herbivore (i.e. avoiding relationships, marriage and all that stuff). So the wimminz are left with no option. After all, gorillas are our ancestors, aren't they?
