A health-conscious gorilla has gone to great lengths to keep her gnashers in good nick – using a branch as dental floss.
The ingenious animal was snapped demonstrating her creative zoo life hack by photographer, Miriam Haas.
The 55-year-old from Devon was visiting Bristol Zoo when she spotted the Western Lowland Gorilla, called Kera, using a bramble branch to clean her teeth.
She said: “She just started running it through her teeth.
“Part of me was laughing at what she was doing but part of me was wincing at the thought of using brambles as dental floss.”
