Apple Stuffed Orangutan

OK, I’m guessing there has to be at least 8 apples in his mouth. Anyone else have a good guess?

From the subtext:
“This orangutan at Moscow Zoo gets his five a day. Olga Dmitrieva, 51, of Moscow, has spent a lot of time photographing the apes and observing their play. Miss Dmitrieva, a martial arts teacher, said: ‘I enjoy photographing them because they have such human characteristics. A lot of the animals in the zoo are given apples and the orangutans have found different ways of playing them. Sometimes they use them like a ball, throwing them and catching them. One this occasion I found one of the orangutans with his mouth crammed full of fruit. He seemed to be doing it as a bit of fun and it made a funny shot.'”

The best part is when he pulls it out of his mouth and puts it back. He then continuously turns his head and “talks” to the people behind the camera. Also, his name is Deekie and he’s a capuchin monkey. Enjoy.

If I were small and light enough to ride on a parrot’s back all day, I would too.

Baby Monkey Riding Pig

Baby Monkey Riding Pig

A friend sent me this YouTube video. My two favorite things are the music, which appears to be specifically written for the video, and the part where the baby monkey is chasing the pig, trying to get back on. Enjoy!

Seriously folks, I can’t make this stuff up. From the same zoo in Nanchang in central China’s Jiangxi province where they had a weightlifting bird and a macaw riding a unicycle on a tightrope, you have this awesome spectacle. The monkey looks pretty bored. I’d be freaking out! That said, I’d pay a good piece of money to ride on the back of a goat across a tightrope.
