Gorillas Play With Boy's Dropped Nintendo at San Francisco Zoo

A little boy learned a valuable lesson during his visit to the San Francisco Zoo: Keep a hold of your things.

The child dropped his Nintendo DS into the gorilla exhibit last week during a visit.

The gorillas below seemed to know the "finders keepers" part of the game and snapped it up.

The mama gorilla kept it away from the little ones and seemed to take to it immediately.

Photographer Christina Spicuzza captured several images of the gorilla trying to figure out the game.

In the end, the boy got his game back. Witnesses said a zoo trainer lured the animal over to the side and traded the game for a shiny red apple.

The DS has a little slobber on it, but worked just fine.

Full story here.
