The chimp - also an avid book reader - learned to clean windows after watching zoo staff. Now they let her get on with it. 

'We are not against such assistance from Anfisa,' said the keepers. 'She copes perfectly with this task and she does not ask for money - but we give her more fruits for her work.'

A voice on the video states: 'Very clean you do it. Best of all. We should finally pay you as a cleaning woman.'
