Toddler and gorilla caught monkeying around in a cheeky game of peek-a-boo

What’s cuter than listening to the excited squeal of a toddler in the midst of a game of peek-a-boo? How about when the other player is a two-year-old gorilla?

Two-year-old Isaiah Chute proves all you need to have a bit of fun is someone with as much curiosity on the other side of a glass cage. And he has found his match in a young gorilla at the Columbus Zoo in Ohio, USA.

Isaiah’s parents caught the two toddlers playing peek-a-boo where it was clearly a case of monkey-see-monkey-do. The duo took turns hiding behind a tree and chasing one another back and forth on either side of the glass while the gorilla’s mum and Isaiah’s parents watched on.

The adorable moment that cements this unlikely friendship has become an instant Internet sensation and just might be the cheekiest and cutest thing we’ve seen all day.
