Meet The “Star” Chimpanzee Who Smokes Up To A Pack Of Cigarettes A Day. Photos

A chain-smoking chimpanzee puffs away on cigarettes – and even knows how to use a lighter – at North Korean zoo where she has developed a 20-a-day habit. The chimp is pulling in the crowds at a newly-opened zoo in North Korea due to her smoking habit.

The star of the zoo in the country’s capital Pyongyang is Azalea, who has taught herself how to light her own cigarettes. She now gets through a pack a day and has even picked up on how to feed her habit if there is no lighter available – by igniting her smokes with a discarded cigarette.
