Orangutan Has The Most Adorable Reaction to Guy’s “Magic Trick”





Orangutan and other primates share a lot in common with us humans, such as an astonishing 98% of our DNA. But who knew they also love seeing magic tricks?

In this video, a zoo visitor entertained this orangutan with a “magic trick” by making a chestnut disappear inside a styrofoam cup. First, he showed the orangutan the chestnut inside the cup and pulled it up for him to see.

And now folks, one perfectly normal chestnut inside a perfectly normal styrofoam cup.

He put on a lid, gave the cup a shake. And with a slight of hand barely noticed by his very eager audience, he hid the chestnut. And POOF! The magical chestnut is gone.

Shake shake shake and one disappeared chestnut coming right up!

His reaction is even strikingly similar to how some of us humans react with a perfectly hilarious joke or trick by falling over backwards! Now I can’t wait to try this trick at our local zoo!
