Muuuum, it’s my turn now! 媽……,現在輪我了!


Just when you get a chance to lay your hands on the latest computer game, along comes mum and hogs it. This comical scene took place after a young zoo visitor accidentally dropped his Nintendo DS games console into the gorilla enclosure.
One of the western lowland gorillas – a 300lb female called Bawang – picked up the device and began to examine it, even fiddling with the buttons.
To the delight of crowds, she soon attracted the curiosity of the one-year-old baby ape called Hasani that she has adopted. The spectacle prompted one of the keepers at San Francisco Zoo to joke that she was playing the game Donkey Kong, a 1980s video game featuring a gigantic ape.
But the ape’s attention span was fairly short lived as she was soon enticed into giving the DS back in exchange for an apple. And fortunately for the owner, his precious device was in full working order.
