VIENNA, Austria (STORYFUL) - A trio of orangutans at a Vienna zoo kept cool during a Europe-wide heatwave in late June by splashing around with a tub of water.

Footage posted by Zoo Vienna Schönbrunn on June 25 shows resident orangutans Sol, Mota, and Vladimir beating the heat by playing with rubber toys in a tub of water. According to the zoo, the orangutans also enjoy playing with a hose that sprays water in all directions.

The high temperature was 88 F in Vienna on June 25, 15 degrees above the city’s historical average.
