While zoos can be a contentious issue to many people around the world, they can also be great fun. They’re an often affordable way to get closer to rare and exotic animals and learn about them in the process. While there is the occasional horror story involving a feces-flinging monkey, most times it’s a fun experience.
At the Barcelona Zoo in sunny Barcelona, Spain, a young orangutan was apparently quite bored one afternoon and decided to get up close and personal with the visitors. Getting as close to the glass as he could, one quick-thinking tourist decided that this young primate needed to see a magic trick. The young orangutan’s reaction is adorable and priceless. Clearly we humans aren’t the only ones who like magic tricks!
