A condor lands in front of the man - watch as he thanks the man who saved him
The condor was rescued by Della Gaspera when he was just a little chick, now he shows his enormous gratitude in a heart-warming gesture caught on film.
We have repeatedly witnessed the fact that animals can have a very emotional life, and that, just as we do, they can also display affection towards those they care about.
This clip is further another proof of just that. Della Gaspera owns a ranch in the province of Neuquén, Argentina. One day he found a condor chick who had fallen out of its nest and injured his leg, writes Infobae.
He couldn't bear the thought of the young chick having to manage on his own, so he decided to help him.
He gave him food and love, and did everything in his power so he could recover and be able to fend for himself.
During this time they formed a special bond, and it became clear that the man meant a lot to the bird, but no one could have imagined how he would show his appreciation.
The video of this beautiful gesture was shared on Facebook, and it spread like wildfire. In it, you can see how the condor approaches the man and gives him a hug, and then stays for a cuddle.
A truly magical moment! It's impossible not to be touched by the way such a large and majestic creature can show so much tenderness.
