Gorilla Plays DSi XL

At the San Francisco Zoo, a gorilla named “Bawang” is getting into gaming. When a boy dropped his Nintendo DSi XL into the gorilla enclosure last week, the primate quickly grabbed the gadget and tried to figure it out.

While Bawang “flipped it over and put it up to her eyes several times,” a younger gorilla named “Hansai” made his way over and grabbed for the DSi XL. When a zoo trainer finally showed up, Bawang traded the gaming device for an apple.

    I think it is fascinating that the younger Gorilla tried to figure out what it does!

    I have heard of gorillas communicating with humans with sign language but I never of a gorilla playing with a Nintendo DSi XL.
