This lovable chimpanzee could not hide his excitement after he was reunited with the two human parents who raised him after he was left to die by his mother.
Limbani was seen drinking through a straw when he hears someone call his name from behind.
The ape then turns around to see Jorge, one of the people who helped raise him.
Limbani cannot help but smile and shout as he jumps into Jorge’s arms and gives him a hug.

The chimp makes sure that his arms are wrapped tightly around the man’s neck and his legs around his waist during the loving embrace.
Limbani is then quickly distracted after seeing Jorge’s wife, Tania, walk into the room. He lets out another excited sound before reaching out to her and giving her a cuddle.
The heart-warming footage was posted on Instagram by the Zoological Wildlife Foundation in Miami, who say the couple helped provide the animal with ‘around the clock care for the first few months of his life’.
Limbani is now staying at the zoo, but regularly sees the couple who raised him when they visit. And even though there can be months between visits, the foundation said the Limbani’s reaction is ‘always the same’ when he is reunited with them.
Limbani was rejected after he was born with pneumonia and rejected by his mother.

Limbani hit headlines in January when a video of him with a Mastiff dog, named Bruno cuddling went viral.
Another video on the Zoo’s website shows ‘bundle of love’ Limbani playing with a golden Tabby tiger cub.
