Muuuum, it's GOT to be my turn now! Gorilla hogs games console from her baby

No! You'll just have to wait: After a young boy accidentally dropped his Nintendo DS into the enclosure at San Francisco Zoo the mother gorilla refused to let her baby play until she was ready to hand over the gadget

Just when you get a chance to lay your hands on the latest computer game, along comes mum and hogs it.

This comical scene took place after a young zoo visitor accidentally dropped his Nintendo DS games console into the gorilla enclosure.

One of the western lowland gorillas – a 300lb female called Bawang – picked up the device and began to examine it, even fiddling with the buttons.

The spectacle prompted one of the keepers at San Francisco Zoo to joke that she was playing the game Donkey Kong, a 1980s video game featuring a gigantic ape.

But the ape's attention span was fairly short lived as she was soon enticed into giving the DS back in exchange for an apple.

The fruit, that is, not the computer.

I'm almost at the next level!: The gorilla eventually handed the red console back to a zoo trainer in exchange for an apple

And fortunately for the owner, his precious device was in full working order.

Photographer Chris Spicuzza, who captured the moment, said: 'We were treated to a very funny incident when a gorilla got hold of a Nintendo DS that a little boy dropped into the gorilla habitat.

'The gorilla was very interested in his prized new find. But It wasn't long before the little gorilla wanted to see what it was.

'He was trying to figure it out. Then he flipped it around to see if that would work.
'Then they both held it very close to their eyes to try to see through it. Of course, the little guy thought he could do a better job and figure it out.

'Then the trainer lured him over with an apple, and traded the game for the shiny red apple.

'The little boy got his game system back, a little beat up and slobbered on, but it still worked.'
