(KGTV) - Does a viral video show a crow striking an ape-like pose?

Yes.

But crow researchers say it's more likely the bird in Japan was adopting a so-called "sunning" posture.

That's when a bird lowers its wings and widens its legs, giving the impression it's standing on its wings.

Despite that, internet viewers have dubbed the creature a "Gorilla Crow."
