What a couple of cheeky monkeys!
An adorable video circulating the web shows a 6-month-old baby and 2-year-old chimp aping each other through the glass at a Wichita zoo.
When Cindy Little took her son Preston to Sedgwick County Zoo, the tot quickly caught the attention of Mabusu, the youngest chimp at the zoo. The two tots started mimicking each other through the glass.
The delighted chimp banged his fists against the glass when the tot held his hands up, and started dancing around. At one point Mabusu tried to lick Preston's little feet.
"The monkey was hitting the glass really hard, but it made it adorable because of the way they were interacting," said Cindy, Fox News reported.
A crowd started to gather to watch the scene. When Cindy and Preston left to let other kids interact with the chimp, Mabusu got sad so they brought the baby back, she said.
A zookeeper told reporters that Mabusu was excited to see a young face, since the next-youngest chimp is his 15-year-old sister.
Zoogoers said the chimp looked "depressed" when the family left the zoo, according to Fox News.
The hilarious video had 7,000 views on YouTube four days after it was posted. "Fox & Friends" showed the video Thursday morning and commented on the youngsters communication skills.
"He enjoys interacting with the public," Chimp and orangutan keeper Devin Baily told reporters. "He loves to play."
