I get the same sort of angry when I can’t understand a magic trick – you’ve done something within my ability to comprehend it, but I lack the information to close the gap. Fuck you, higher primate.
In a word: “DAMIEN!”

Appears to me it’s reacting more because of the gesture.
Good thing there’s glass between them.
Maybe the baboon is concerned about his self-esteem.
Wow I just watched it again and noticed something - when the baboon sees the card disappear, he only looks for it for a split second before looking up, MAKING EYE CONTACT WITH THE GUY, and expressing his amazement. Not sure if awesome or depressing…
It’s a baboon, so I’m going with “angry”.
It’s conspicuously not baring its teeth. That seems to suggest that it’s not angry or frightened.
The baboon’s secret is that baboons are always angry.
Super depressing. I’ve worked zoos (as a veterinarian), and the larger primate enclosures are always pretty sad. They’re all intelligent enough that they’re bored out of their minds, which often results in a variety of pathological behaviors. We had one orangutan that kept unbolting parts of the enclosure. He figured out how to use his massive strength and a slim strip of metal that had somehow ended up in his enclosure, to unfasten heavy bolts holding giant sheets of plexi to a metal frame. Never unbolted a whole panel, just took bolts out, and put them in conspicuous places for the keepers to find. Hid the F out of his tool though… They only found it after moving all the inhabitants of the enclosure to a holding area and doing a full detailed sweep of the enclosure.
Sound a bit like the cat and mouse games that prisoners play with jailers? Yeah, that’s what I thought too.
Why has the uploader not made this available in my country???
