 A picture on the eBay listing showed the one-and-a-half-inch Cheeto next to a picture of Harambe climbing a tree.

According to the listing, the seller found the gorilla-shaped puff in a bag of Flamin’ Hot Cheetos as soon as the bag was opened.

“This item is one of a kind,” the ad said, adding “This makes a great collectible for anyone who appreciates rare items!”

Someone, obviously agreed, bidding $99,900 for the snack.

Harambe, a 17-year-old male western lowland gorilla, was shot and killed at the Cincinnati Zoo last year after a child fell into his enclosure, sparking a backlash against the zoo and the mother of the four-year-old boy who fell into Harambe’s cage.

The zoo defended its decision to shoot the gorilla at the time, saying officials feared for the boy’s safety.
