Gorilla Mimics Busch Gardens Specialist

Busch Gardens is building trust with a gorilla through mimicking movements.

Busch Gardens Tampa Bay gave a glimpse of important moments of the training in a new video.

Animal care specialist Rachel is seen performing movements, after which the gorilla Bolingo mimics her.

There is only a thin glass wall separating the pair.

“Take a look at this progression of enrichment moments with Bolingo and animal care specialist, Rachel,” the Facebook post said, reported Fox 13. “This type of training enables us to build trusting and positive relationships with the animals that call Busch Gardens Tampa Bay home, in order to provide them with the most mentally and physically stimulating environment possible.”
