Shaquille O’Neal posseses such an imposing physique that even gorillas are intimidated by him.

During a recent episode of “The Big Podcast with Shaq,” the 49-year-old Hall-of-Famer explained that gorillas at every zoo he’s been to go crazy when he shows up and that they want to fight him.

The conversation kicked off when Shaq was contemplating whether or not to let his gray hair grow out, joking that he would be a “silverback” (gorilla) and not a “silver fox.”

He then explained how gorillas act in his presence.

“I’ve been to every zoo in the world, and every time I go to the gorilla section, they look at me like, ‘hey man, where your fur at?’ For real. That’s how they look at me.
They also look at me like, ‘What am I doing in here and you out there?’ And they always go crazy when they see me,” the 216-cm. big man said.

Shaq then called animal expert Ron Magill, the communications director for Miami Zoo, who not only confirmed the story but took it a step further by explaining that the male gorillas are intimidated by Shaq.

“The gorilla gets intimated, and he looks at Shaq and thinks that Shaq is going to take away his girls. So, he gets tight-lipped and tries to stand up and make himself look as big as possible,” Magill said.
“But at the end of the day, the gorilla backs off. He knows who’s the boss,” he concluded.

Shaq then added that it is the same at every zoo. “Every zoo in the world they go crazy,” Shaq said. “They try to break out the damn thing and try to fight me.”
