Baboons flossing Paignton Zoo in Devon<br />
<br />
This baboon will be given a clean bill of health if she visits the dentist, as she has been trying out something new to keep her teeth healthy - flossing.<br />
<br />
The female baboon was given a broom head by zoo-keepers to play with, but she had other ideas and decided it's more important to take care of her dental hygiene.<br />
<br />
So after examining the broom head, Georgia the baboon pulled out one of the bristles, pulled it taut between both hands and started flossing her teeth. <br />
<br />
Zoo-keepers were shocked to see Georgia, a hamadryas baboon, start flossing and volunteer zoo worker Liz Chisholm managed to capture it.<br />
