Gorillas snack on popcorn at Brookfield Zoo


(WFLA/CNN Newsource) – Hallelujah, it’s raining… popcorn?

That’s what’s happening in the gorilla habitat at Chicago’s Brookfield Zoo.

It’s not a one-off occurrence, either.

The zoo installed special feeders with timers that release various food items at random times.

Sometimes, that food is popcorn.

Zoo officials say it encourages the primate to forage and it provides entertainment for both lowland gorillas and human visitors.
