Gorilla With Nintendo DS: Is It Playing Donkey Kong?

Christina Spicuzza of Spicuzza Photo A Day went to the San Francisco Zoo last week and snapped this priceless photo of an inquisitive pair of gorillas playing with a Nintendo DS that someone had accidentally dropped into their habitat:

The gorilla tried all he could to figure the thing out turning it forward, backwards and holding it really close to his head. A trainer at the zoo was able to trade the DS for an apple and gave the console back to the boy who dropped it. It reportedly still worked though it was scratched and covered with gorilla slobber.

That is the DSi XL. The gorilla would have extremely small hands if that was a SP.

Why on earth would a parent let him play with his game (a very expensive game at that) at the zoo? I understand playing games on long rides, but the kid should have been looking at the animals, not the game.
