Baboon Is Amazed When Visitor Performs Spectacular Magic Trick Just For Him

February 14, 2018

When a man decided to take a visit to his local zoo, he decided it was the perfect time to practice his magic skills. The real question then became, whom to perform for?

As he approached the monkeys, inspiration struck! He headed over to the baboons, where one of the curious residents had set up on the ledge near the glass. He was perfectly placed to watch his very own magic show.

The magician knelt down and held out a small card, showing it off to the baboon who appeared interested in what he was getting up to. The baboon watched curiously, not quite sure what was going to happen next.

With a flick of his wrist, the card disappeared. The baboon watched with amazement, jumping to his feet and checking the magician's hand with astonishment.

With another flick of the wrist, the card was back in his hand, leaving the baboon completely shocked. The baboon wasn’t quite sure what to make of this magic and he smacked his hand against the glass.

While people all around the world have fallen in love with magic of all kinds, I don’t think anyone ever expects a baboon to react quite like this. This baboon’s reaction is a great reminder to all of us to take joy in the magic of things we don’t quite understand.
