KREFELD, Germany, Jan. 1 (UPI) -- Officials at a German zoo said a gorilla that initially had difficulty adjusting to his new home is rope dancing for the zoo's 75th anniversary Jubilee.

A spokeswoman for the zoo in Krefeld said Kidogo was homesick when he came to the facility from Denmark in April, but he is now back to performing his signature rope dance and is showing off his trick for the zoo's anniversary, Die Welt reported Tuesday.

The 12-year-old silverback gorilla lives with a pair of females, Muna and Oya, in the zoo's Gorilla Garden.
