Watch this gorilla dance around in his pool

Zola the gorilla back in action

But sometimes, you just need to watch a big gorilla dance in a small pool.

Zola, 14, is a western Iowland gorilla that now resides at the Dallas Zoo.

In the original video posted Tuesday to the Dallas Zoo's YouTube page, Zola repeatedly spins and skips around a small pool, thrashing up water with its arms.

Zola and his brother Shana were transferred to the Dallas Zoo in 2013 after failing to integrate into the gorilla troop at the Calgary Zoo.

Add Michael Sembello's hit "Maniac" from the 80s movie "Flashdance" and the result is pure joy.

"I can not stress enough how important it is you watch this gorilla bathe-dancing to maniac", tweets Kristina Luca.

Zola the gorilla is a good dancer.

Zola has not been trained to dance and his moves are all natural behaviour to him.

"This is Zola 100 percent", Ashely Orr, the primate supervisor who recorded the hilarious video, wrote to ABC News.

Zola is 14 years old, so he's basically a child star.

The Dallas Zoo says the pool is one of the many enrichment items, devices used to better an animal's behavior, used by Zola.
