WATCH: Arizona orangutan captivated by yo-yo tricks

A baby orangutan was captivated when a young boy showed off his yo-yo tricks. 

Lucy Feuerstein was visiting the Phoenix Zoo, and while at the orangutan exhibit, one young primate seemed to get a kick out of a boy’s yo-yo tricks, giving all of its attention to the performance.

Feuerstein captured video of the reaction, showing the baby orangutan approach the glass barrier between him and the boy, staring at the yo-yo’s movements, and then falling backwards, probably out of excitement. 

The boy, named Hunter Feuerstein, is a two-time Arizona state yo-yo champion, and the baby orangutan certainly seemed impressed.
