A zoo otter in Japan has spun its way to fame on the Internet.


A video posted by the Fukuoka City Zoological Garden shows an otter, named Genta, hanging from a rope that he’s holding with his mouth and spinning for 20 seconds.

The twirling move, dubbed ‘dynamic tornado’, went viral in Japan soon after the footage was released.

The zoo says the reason behind Genta’s peculiar interest to spin is not clear. The otter has previously put on spinning shows longer than 5 minutes.
