BALTIMORE (WJZ) — The Maryland Zoo’s newest chimpanzee reached a milestone Tuesday: she is now able to stare and focus on certain objects, including her own reflection.

The zoo posted a video on Instagram that showed Maisie playing with toys when she noticed a mirror and then something — herself — staring back at her.
