Zola The Breakdancing Gorilla, Dances In The Bath

Zola the young breakdancing gorilla has become an internet sensation, with his uninhibited dance moves and love of water. Zola has his own private bath pool behind the scenes of his enclosure, where he lives at the Dallas Zoo, in Texas, USA. Swimming and water play is part of his enrichment program behind the scenes, which takes place out of public view.

Enrichment programs in zoos are designed to add mental and physical stimulation for the animals and allow them to exhibit natural behaviors.
This video was filmed by zookeeper Ashley Orr on June 20, 2017. Watching Zola dance in the water will make you smile. He does what all of us can only dream of – he embraces his bath time and owns it!

Happy video:

 

Nearly half of Earth’s remaining mountain gorillas – only around 400 animals – live deeply secluded in Uganda’s Bwindi National Park. But now, tea planters want to clear-cut an adjoining buffer zone, Kafuga Pocket Forest Reserve.

The destruction of the forest would push the critically endangered gorillas one step closer to extinction. The survival of the mountain gorillas in neighboring Bwindi National Park is critically dependent on Kafuga Forest remaining intact.

To help Vietnamese animals, please help this Vietnamese vet get the extra training she cannot receive in Vietnam. A small $2 will help her achieve this goal. With extra training she can teach fellow Vietnamese vets better ways to treat dogs and cats, which is not taught in Vietnamese vet schools: https://www.mycause.com.au/page/151374/help-fund-my-dream-vet-internship
