Gorillas at Chessington World of Adventures Resort are building raincoats, umbrellas, gloves and slippers all from the straw, as they refuse to be beaten by the torrential rain.
The shelters enable the gorillas to venture out in their outdoor enclosure and get on with their daily tasks at the Chessington reserve, which is home to nine Western Lowland Gorillas.
The resourceful group were spotted layering straw on their heads to keep dry, and we must admit, we're not fond of rain either!
Female gorillas in particular are very good at crafting canopies to keep their fur dry and glossy.
Lisa Britton, primate keeper at Chessington World of Adventures Resort, said: "Gorillas are highly intelligent primates and, like us, they don't like getting their hair wet!
"By manipulating their surroundings to create umbrellas, gloves and slippers, gorillas are able to keep dry when the good old British weather is at its worst.
"The females are the best at building protective layers and use the rain as an excuse to show off their creative skills to the males by building big straw structures! There's a practical side to it, too, as the gorillas are able to keep their fur, partners and their babies, out of rain's way."
