Dancing is a great way of expressing yourself and having fun at the same time! While it might be obvious that people like dancing, there are many other species that love it as well! In fact, the folks at the Dallas Zoo have a gorilla named Zola who does the most amazing thing whenever she is put in a swimming pool!

Gorillas are big and fierce animals and this is why most people wouldn’t expect them to dance! Well, Zola is here to break the stereotype because dancing is her favorite thing. You won’t believe what she does whenever she is put in a kiddie pool.

It all started when the zookeepers put Zola in a kiddie pool in order to give her a bath. However, the most unexpected thing happened after she felt the water around her feet…

Zola started splashing water around as soon as she got in the kiddie pool. Although, this was just the beginning!

Not long after entering the kiddie pool, Zola started spinning around. The zookeepers didn’t realize what she was doing at first, but they figured it out right after seeing what she did next.

10. The Second Time

The second time Zola showcased her dancing moves wasn’t in a kiddie pool! However, water was pouring down a hose and this prompted Zola to start spinning around once again!

9. The Classic Spin Move

It seems like Zola’s “go to” dance move is to spin around. However, Zola doesn’t have the same energy as in the first dance demonstration and she gets tired pretty fast.

8. Getting Tired

Even though Zola loves to dance, this time she didn’t feel the groove! What do you think she did after spinning around a couple of times?

7. Going To Sleep

Zola didn’t feel like dancing anymore and she went straight to her special bed to sleep. No one can blame Zola for not feeling the groove because dancing is great exercise and everyone gets tired fast.

5. Gorillas Love Water

A fun fact about gorillas is that they love water and not just to drink it, they find many uses for it! Check out the next pictures to find out why they like water so much.

4. Mirror Image

Gorillas have found many uses for water and one of the most interesting ones is to use it as a mirror. This shows us how smart these animals can be!

3. They Can’t Swim!

What’s interesting is that gorillas cannot swim naturally! This is why they usually avoid standing in deep water, but this doesn’t mean that they are afraid of it. You won’t believe what they do whenever rain starts pouring down.

2. Standing In The Rain

Whenever gorillas are surprised by rain they don’t run away! Instead of looking for cover, these gorillas stay motionless and wait for the rain to end. Isn’t this interesting?
