Gavin DeGraw came to ABQ BioPark Zoo in Albuquerque, N.M., to perform his hits – but couldn’t leave without monkeying around.

While in town Wednesday for a gig with Colbie Caillat, the singer and Dancing With the Stars alum shared photos on his trip to the park.

In a collage of photos, he acts like a gorilla while standing beside the real thing and imitates an elephant sticking out his tongue.

In another shot, the animal lover graciously gives a spa treatment to one lucky rhinoceros.

“Yes it’s true. I’m loofa-ing a rhino,” he Tweeted. “What do you do on weekdays?”
