Silverback Gorilla Catches Tomato Like A Pro

A 36-year-old Silverback Gorilla called Pertinax from Paignton Zoo in south-west England showed sharp reflexes to catch a tomato.

In the video, Pertinax keeps beckoning his keeper with his arms and clapping his hands to encourage him to throw food.

Eventually, a tomato is thrown in his direction from a distance – seen here 24 seconds into the clip. The throw is a little wayward, in front and to the right of Pertinax. Nonetheless, the silverback catches it with ease as he cooly sticks out his right palm.
