This chimpanzee from the Twycross Zoo in England managed to get hold of a CD, presumably from a keeper and she loves it. The ape is holding the CD delicately in front of her face and uses it as a mirror to keep checking herself out!

      It was quite fascinating to watch her. Apparently in 2016 they did a test and only great apes (including humans), a single Asiatic elephant, dolphins, orcas, and the Eurasian magpie have passed the mirror test that they recognise themselves in a mirror.
