Another video of the gorillas at Omaha's Henry Doorly Zoo is gaining views on the Internet.

This time the video shows one of the the gorillas take a flying leap at one of the windows in the enclosure - without the glass breaking like in the last viral video.

User Amanda Briggs posted the video on YouTube three days ago.  (Since then, it appears another user has made a copy. It is unknown if that was done with permission.)  KMTV has reached out to Briggs for comment. 

In the about section of the YouTube channel, which features dozens of videos from the zoo, they write, "These guys are so active and interactive with us we've been back pretty much weekly ever since." 

Major media websites like UPROXX and Daily Mail have shared the video, noting that the man in the video seems unfazed by the gorilla's behavior.

In the video below, from April 2015, KMTV talks to zoo officials about the gorilla that broke a layer of protective glass.
