ESSEX, England, Oct. 11 (UPI) -- A U.K. magician had the opportunity to captivate a special audience at a local zoo by performing for an orangutan.
Matt G Mentalist shared video of himself performing a card trick for Colchester Zoo's Raj the Orangutan.
"A touch of magic can fuel anyone's curiosity," he said.
Matt left Raj dumbfounded as he pressed a playing card up against the glass surrounding the orangutan's enclosure and appeared to push it through to the other side for Raj to grab.
The amazed primate examined the card closely before pressing it back up against the glass and tapping it with a stick.
Matt also shared photos of Raj after the trick was complete as his fascination with the card persisted.
"Think he liked his little gift," he wrote.
