Gorilla Practices Balancing Act in Cameroon Wildlife Centre

A gorilla was filmed showing off some fancy footwork while on a tightrope in Limbe, Cameroon, in a video shared on March 20.

Limbe Wildlife Centre, a rescue and rehabilitation facility for animals seized from the illegal wildlife trades in Cameroon, shared the clip of one of the resident gorillas.

“Whilst silverbacks are far bigger, heavier and less agile than their female counterparts, rescued silverback Batek can still successfully take on the tightrope challenge!” the rescue service wrote in a caption accompanying this footage.

In the video, Batek skillfully climbs across the piece of rope and balances on two feet before making it safely to a treetop perch. Credit: Limbe Wildlife Centre via Storyful
