It is a long-standing tradition to invite anyone interested to participate in the Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden's Easter celebrations— including the gorillas in their exhibit, who were caught on video hunting for Easter eggs.

As a part of the annual Easter egg hunt at the Cincinnati Zoo, gorillas were invited to search for colored hard-boiled eggs hidden in plain sight around their habitat.
"They really like hard-boiled eggs," a representative from the zoo said, "so they're running around trying to get as much of them as they can."
As seen in the Cincinnati Zoo's video, each gorilla has their own unique way of enjoying the treat. Some separate them with their hands, and others with their lips.
Gladys, M'Linzi and Samantha, the lowland gorillas that participated in the activity, were also on the hunt for beads and crackers.

"We give them enrichment every day," the representative said, "but this is more extravagant than what we give them on a daily basis."
