Chimp at zoo plays copycat with toddler

Posted: Updated:

It's an adorable case of monkey-see, monkey-do.

Cindy little and her 6-month-old son, Preston, got caught up in some major monkey business during a recent outing to Wichita's Sedgwick County Zoo. 

Little Preston caught the eye of Mabusu the chimp, and before you know it, the two began a playful game of copycat all caught on Cindy's cell phone. 

"At first I was a little worried because the monkey was actually hitting the glass really hard. It made it adorable because of the way they were just interacting. Different things that the monkey did, my son kept laughing," said little. "We did gather a crowd with a lot of people recording it, and laughing and cutting up. And I felt that it was necessary for us to leave so the other kids can actually interact. And when we did unfortunately the little monkey got depressed, so everyone told us to come back over." 

Zoo officials say Mabusu was so happy to see the little guy because there are no chimps his age living at the zoo to play with him. The only other chimp is his 15-year-old sister.
