    Orangutan finds possum in its treehouse and throws it like a frisbee, video shows

    OK, I laughed. Note: no animals were hurt during the filming of this video.

    Orangutan finds possum in its treehouse and throws it like a frisbee, video shows

    An orangutan at a zoo in Australia found an unwanted visitor in its treehouse. The apes solution? To quite literally throw the visitor out.


    A video posted on Reddit by user @j___---h on Sept. 9 captured the interaction at the Perth Zoo. The video shows a possum flying out of a treehouse and through the air. People can be heard screaming as the possum disappears over the enclosures exterior wall.


    The camera pans back to the treehouse and shows an orangutan climbing out. The large, orange ape appears to look in the direction of the long-gone possum, the video shows.


    The anonymous poster told 7 News, an Australian outlet, that the orangutan threw the possum like a frisbee.


    Perth Zoo reassured McClatchy News that the possum was sighted scurrying off after being evicted. They are a very robust species.

    Who knew possum could fly?
