We could be looking at the premise for the next David Blaine magic video here as it seems baboons are especially amazed at card tricks.
In this amusing video submitted to America’s Funniest Home Videos, a disappearing card trick is performed on a baboon behind glass at a zoo. Watch as the animal follows the vanishing move and reappearance with appropriate aghast.
Primates in particular have extremely high comprehension levels, with many able to preform sign language.
We are told later the baboon in this video was shown a David Copperfield trick and was not impressed.
