Young women in Japan have been swooning over a gorgeous gorilla named Shabani. His mug shot has been showing up all over Twitter and the hunky guy has at least 100 people surrounding his pen at any given moment.

What's most arresting about Shabani's photos is the sheer intelligence in his eyes and face. Gorillas and humans use similar facial expressions to convey emotions, which might be why Shabani manages to look like a model in so many shots.

Shabani's strong jawline highlights his masculine features.

Not only do gorillas use facial cues and noises to communicate intentions, but Shabani uses sounds and posturing to avoid confrontation. He's sensitive like that.
