Spunky gorilla doesn’t hold back when he steps in the swimming pool

Zola the gorilla splashes around and dances in a swimming pool at the Dallas Zoo. While it’s sad to see any animal in captivity, enrichment sessions like this help the animals mentally and physically. Some words from the Dallas Zoo below:

“Enrichment helps enhance the environment and lives of animals, like Zola, by providing them with mental and physical stimulation to increase natural behaviors. Enrichment can take many forms, but for this spunky great ape, it means playing and spinning in his favorite blue pool!”

You may remember the viral video of a young Zola displaying his playful behavior by breakdancing at the Calgary Zoo:

This gorilla is not shy when it comes to his dancing skills! 🙂
