Baby Chimpanzee Shows He's a Skilled Escape Artist

Chimpanzees are one of the smartest animal species, and this baby chimp is no exception.

Limbani is a young chimpanzee living happily in his sanctuary at Zoological Wildlife Foundation - an organization intent on educating the public about wildlife conservation.

Little Limbani is not only adorable, but he also teaches others about the importance of preserving natural habitats and protecting endangered species. His main job responsibility includes making new friends, but most of the time, he's free to be as silly and smart as he wants to be.

Limbani is learning new lessons everyday. He already learned how to ride a tricycle, and one of his feats is figuring out he doesn't need to wait for humans to help him go where he wants to go.

The little chimp was several inches too short to reach the door handle and didn't yet have the strength to open the door without leverage, but that didn't stop him.

Limbani saw a door he wanted to go through and figured out how to reach his goal. Luckily, his handlers were waiting on the other side and now know that doors will have to be securely locked if they don't want the adventurous chimp getting into trouble.

To keep up with this little smarty pants, follow him on the Zoological Wildlife Foundation Facebook page.
