If you think Easter egg hunts are meant only for humans, think again. At Ohio's Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden, even the animals join in the fun. On Saturday, March 19, park officials organized the annual egg hunt for the resident western lowland gorillas by hiding brightly colored boiled eggs and other treats inside their enclosure.

The smart apes knew exactly what to do. They picked up their baskets and began an intense search to try to grab as many of the treats as possible. However, their baskets remained empty, because just like humans, they instantly devoured every one of them!

      Most people see gorillas as big dangerous animals, I hope this video changes peoples minds. (If you like gorillas than that is awesome! Or if you now like gorillas!)
