It seems like it's not just humans that have to go to class - animals do, too!

This cheeky gorilla was snapped having a whole host of fun at the gorilla school at Paignton Zoo Environmental Park in Devon.

Kivu loves his blue barrel

Kivu, 12, had plenty of fun monkeying around in his barrel. The cutie spent time sitting inside it, before deciding to place it on his head.

Finally, he even sat in it. We wonder if he's pretending to be Santa, trying to get down a chimney?!

The gorilla school helps young males be stimulated in a social environment before they're taken to form breeding groups across Europe.

From the looks of things, it's a right "barrel" of laughs!
