A playful chimpanzee caught some air while skateboarding around his rescue centre.

Lambani currently lives the easy life at the Zoological Wildlife Foundation in Miami, Florida, where he frolics around and has fun with founder, Mario S. Tabraue.

The three-year-old didn’t have any easy start to life, as he was born to a mother who had broken three of her ribs, resulting in her not being able to produce milk for Lambani to feed on, which caused the newborn to suffer with pneumonia.

However, he is now living up to his name, which means ‘be strong’, as not only did he survive, but he now lives a happy life with Mario and friends.

Catching some air, little Lambani was captured on camera happily riding his very own skateboard as he skated around his rescue centre like a pro.
