Gorillas live outside—in rainforests. They must be okay with the rain, right?
In a video shared by Riverbanks Zoo and Garden, you can see proof of this as six gorillas are sheltering under an overhang in their enclosure in a downpour.
The gorillas, four adults and two babies, were quite obviously not happy with the situation.
After scoping out the path to dryness, Acacia decided to make a break for it—practically hugging the wall to stay as dry as possible.
The others followed, with dominant male Cenzoo waiting for the two mothers, Macy and Kazi, with their babies, Mo and ZaKota, to go first.
There were many scowls all around as the gorillas scrambled to get to a drier spot.
Mammal Keeper Brooke Hunsinger commented on the gorillas' haste at getting out of the rain.
"Gorillas are magnificent, majestic creatures full of grace and beauty... except when it rains."
The video has since been viewed millions of times, and has over 800 comments.
The Zoo was pretty amazed by the popularity of the video, posting:
"Our keepers spotted the family troop as they were heading inside to avoid last Friday's downpour. This video has created quite the buzz, and has been viewed by MILLIONS of people around the WORLD 😱"
"We can sure see why, their expressions are so relatable!"

As it turns out, humans and gorillas are pretty similar in their disdain for getting rained on.
