A gorilla.

Gorillas are a species of ape found in Stranglethorn Vale, Feralas, Un'Goro Crater, Sholazar Basin, the Jade Forest, and Zandalar. They are typically hostile to any travelers that come across them despite the fact that they are herbivores. An enormous gorilla named King Mukla dwells on Jaguero Island in southeast Stranglethorn Vale, holding a tauren named Princess Poobah captive.

Young apes quickly learn to hang from branches with their feet, leaving both hands free to fling objects at interlopers.[1] The gorillas at Gorilla Gorge in Zuldazar are highly intelligent due to the presence of kaja'mite.[2]

Gorillas are a family of Tenacity pets and are tamable by hunters starting at level 28. Gorillas, through use of their [Pummel] ability, interrupt spellcasting, preventing any spell in that school from being cast for 2 sec. This is great in PvP and also has uses in PvE, especially for interrupting bosses in 5-player dungeons.

There are five different skins available for gorilla pets - the white Mob Tsul'Kalu model being the rarest by far. Gorillas became very popular for a time because they were the only pet with access to the Thunderstomp skill. With Thunderstomp now available to any Tenacity pet, they have become uncommon.
