Zola the Breakdancing Gorilla (Video)

Zola, nine-years old, is one of eight Western lowland gorillas currently living at the Calgary Zoo as part of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums Gorilla Species Survival Plan. He was caught on cam doing an action that appeared like breakdancing. The video has more than 718,000 hits as of this posting.

YouTube user "CalgaryZoo1" said Zola loves to play in water and keepers regularly give him the opportunity to do so as part of the enrichment activities they plan and vary on a daily basis.

The video shows Zola having pure fun with an enrichment opportunity and is not trained behaviour. The music was added afterward, the uploader noted.
