This Orangutan Was Baffled By A Magician’s Card Trick — Too Funny!
A curious orangutan is captivated while a magician performs this seemingly impossible magic trick.
Rajang the orangutan is transfixed by magician Matt G who went to Colchester Zoo in Essex to perform the trick on Monday.
The 48-year-old ape watches as the trickster shuffles a deck of cards before placing the ace on diamonds against the enclosure window.
The performer places both of his hand on top of the card to ‘transport’ it through the glass.
A mesmerised Rajang slowly realises the card is now on his side of the glass and peels it off with one of his huge hands.
After examining the card the orangutan sticks it back on the glass and seems to try and transport it back through the glass by tapping it with a stick.
Rajang’s keeper has described him as ‘loving to be involved’ and ‘imitate people’.
He arrived at Colchester Zoo in 1980 after previously living at Chester Zoo.
He was hand-reared by keepers after the death of his mother when he was baby and it is thought this is where his fascination with copying humans comes from.
This is not the first time he has been in the news. Last year he was filmed tenderly kissing a pregnant woman’s baby bump through his enclosure glass.
