An unusual medical procedure took place at the San Francisco Zoo this week - the patient was a gorilla.

Zura, 29, was having gastrointestinal problems, so doctors did an endoscopy to see what was wrong.

Part of the problem could be that Zura likes to taste anything she can get her hands on -- including cups, purses, and even cellular phones.

Once doctors get results of the endoscopy, they can figure out how to treat Zura.
