VIDEO: Orangutan’s Hilarious Reaction To A Magic Trick


Published at 11:30am 3rd June 2016.

An orangutan’s reaction to a magic trick has been caught on camera and it is going viral online.

The Great Apes are an incredible species and we often forget how similar they are to humans.

This intelligent orangutan watches curiously as the man reveals a magic trick behind the glass.

The trick consists of a chestnut disappearing from a cup and the lovable orangutan falls to the floor as if it is in fits of giggles.

The video was originally uploaded by Dan Zaleski.

He wrote: “If you were as moved as much as we were, seeing just how similar an orangutan is to a human, you can help save our cousins from extinction in the wild be supporting conservation work.”

Dan shares a link to The Orangutan Foundation International, a leading conservation organisation in Borneo and is asking people to donate.

Watch the adorable video below - it will have you smiling for the rest of the day.
