Even a gorilla can only take so much abuse.

A taunted gorilla at the Dallas Zoo turned on its child tormentors giving them a good scare in a video posted Tuesday on YouTube that quickly went viral. In it, the primate shows that it doesn't have patience for immature taunting of bullying children.

The group of visiting kids repeatedly yelled, "you ugly," while one child mockingly beat his chest, as the gorilla squatted in the sun beyond an observation window. After about 15 seconds of abuse, the gorilla suddenly presses his large hands against the glass partition and glares menacingly at his now frightened onlookers.

The children near the front can be seen scattering and stepping back. No one was hurt in the exchange at the zoo's western lowland gorilla exhibit.

Apparently satisfied with the lesson taught, the gorilla turns, but offered once final glance to the children as it walked away.
