Looking Good! Adorable Baby Chimp Fascinated by Her Own Reflection

A baby chimpanzee at Maryland Zoo in Baltimore got acquainted with her own reflection recently – and appeared to be fascinated by what she saw in the mirror.

Footage shared to Facebook on November 17 shows two-month-old Maisie getting to grips with seeing herself in the mirror. According to the zoo, baby chimpanzees start to stare at and focus on objects, including their own reflection, at around two or three months old.

Maisie was born on August 28 at Oklahoma Zoo, and was later moved to Maryland Zoo to be hand-reared and later paired with a surrogate chimp mother after her birth mother was unable to care for her properly.

“Every milestone that chimp Maisie reaches brings her closer to being introduced to a surrogate mother and the troop,” the zoo said in a post. Credit: Maryland Zoo via Storyful
