This is not your typical Easter egg hunt.

Citing the upcoming holiday, this week the Cincinnati Zoo put on a series of animal Easter egg hunts. But the one that stole our hearts and seemed to be the most popular was for the gorillas, specifically Gladys, the newest member of their family.

This was Gladys' first time participating in the annual hunt, according to Fox 19. She was joined by Jomo the silverback, M'Linzi, Mara, Samantha, Asha and Anju. Easter baskets were placed in the gorilla encampment with peanuts, raisins, popcorn, sunflower seeds, granola and -- of course -- some colored hard boiled eggs.
