“Making a play face and laughing is a natural chimp behavior and a milestone chimp babies typically reach between 12 to 16 weeks,” the zoo said.

After laughing for the first time, the adorable Maisie then starts to play around with a baby toy in the video.

The zoo said Maisie came to them to be placed with a surrogate chimp mother after her birth mother at the Oklahoma City Zoo was not able to properly care for her.
