Have you ever seen a gorilla dance? Maybe you did. However, did you ever see a gorilla break-dance? The answer is probably no.
In this rare video, you can see Zola dance like a professional break-dancer, splashing, spinning and stomping. It seems she is enjoying herself very much.
Zola, who is 8 years old now, was born in Bronx Zoo in New York City and moved to Calgary Zoo in Canada 2 years ago.
The video was put together by the zookeepers on YouTube and the Zoo's Facebook page. It soon became so popular that it received above 15,000 clicks in a span of 72 hours. The number of viewers keep increasing every moment and the video, which was put up on YouTube on June 17, has already been viewed 1.2 million times.
According the zoo officials, Zola loves to play in water and keepers regularly give her the opportunity to do so as part of the enrichment activities they plan and vary on a daily basis.
Zola is one of the Western lowland gorillas, which have been listed as critically endangered by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature.
