VIDEO: Gorillas avoid heavy rain at South Carolina Zoo


COLUMBIA, S.C. (WTHR) — Gorillas are similar to people in several ways, including they hate to get wet.

A group of gorillas at the Riverbanks Zoo and Garden in Columbia, South Carolina are not fans of heavy downpours, WYCB reported.

A video of the gorillas avoiding the rain was taken by zookeeper Brooke Hunsinger. It shows the gorillas sitting under an awning staying dry before they decide to make a run for it back inside.

"Gorillas are magnificent, majestic creatures full of grace and beauty... except when it rains," Hunsinger wrote on Facebook.
