Visitors to a zoo were amazed to see a gorilla playing with a Nintendo DS at San Francisco Zoo. Photographer Christina Spicuzza snapped female gorilla Bawang who had managed to get hold of a handheld games console a young boy had dropped into her enclosure. But her new toy soon caught the attention of 20-month-old son Hansani - who came and peered at the game...
.Christina, 33, of California, told Rex Features: "I heard a commotion and realised a little boy had dropped the Nintendo into the gorilla habitat. Bawang immediately ran over to get the game before sitting down and inspecting it. But pretty soon Hasani came over to see what was going on. Hasani reached for it a few times, and was swatted away by Bawang." Bawang was eventually persuaded to thrown the Nintendo back into the watching crowd by a gamekeeper - in return for an apple. (Not an Apple.)
