Hilarious orangutan sticks bubble gum up his nose

Benji, the large Borneo Orangutan male from the Dudley zoo in the West Midlands, England enjoys to chew, but what can you do if you haven’t got any real gum? Not a problem for this clever Orangutan. He just rips off some cardboard from the box and uses that as chewing gum substitute. The handsome fellow is enjoying it that much; you can hear the noise he is making and see his huge teeth. His mother obviously never told him to close his mouth while chewing. In between chewing, he has a look by having the piece on the end of his lip and glancing down towards the piece of paper. He keeps chewing when he lies down, but what he does next is not for the faint-hearted. He sticks his substitute gum into his nostril, pushes it in a little more has a good sniff and then he takes it back out again. Yes you’'ve seen it correctly he is putting it back into his mouth – eek and continues to chew with pleasure. Benji had his 40th birthday on the 6t November 2017. He was born in 1977 at Duisburg zoo, Germany. In 1978 he transferred to Wuppertal Zoo, Germany. In 1994 he moved to Dublin zoo, Ireland and in 1996 he moved to Dudley, UK. Dudley zoo has one other male called Jorong in a different enclosure from Benji. There is also the female orangutan Jazz with her 7-year-old daughter called Sprout. Sprout is very lovable and very clever. Watch her here on Rumble as a Baby orangutan jumps onto self-made crash mat! Dudley Zoological Gardens is a 40-acre zoo located within the grounds of Dudley Castle in the town of Dudley, in the Black Country region of the West Midlands, England.

Check out this playful gorilla at the Twycross Zoo in England go full play mode on his grandmother. It almost looks as if these fun-loving apes are putting a show on for all the spectators at the zoo! Isn't this video just hilarious? Animals have many human-like characteristics about themselves which is highlighted in this video right here. Lope is a 4-year-old western lowland gorilla, a species that is labeled as critical on the IUCN list. He is the the second child of 22-year-old mother Ozala and 24-year-old dad Oumbi. The 4-year-old rascal can be seen running around their enclosure in Twycross, just like a human baby would, teasing his grandmother, engaging in play mode. It is an important aspect of a gorilla youngers’ behavior, but he needs to learn about the hierarchy in the troop. These rare primates are usually found in dense rainforests and swamps in Central Africa, but their populations in the wild have declined by more than 60% in the past two decades. Western lowland gorillas have been pushed to the brink of extinction by humans clearing their forests for timber, oil and gas, as well as poaching the animals for bushmeat and the illegal pet trade.

Athletic Ape Shows Off Back-Flip Skills54s

Athletic Ape Shows Off Back-Flip Skills

The weather is finally getting better as it is warming up and the animals at the zoo are getting lively. Take a glimpse at this Bonobo ape for instance and how he is showing his cheerfulness by his acrobatics around the enclosure. First, he happily rolls around and stretches and scratches in the sun, taking short breaks before the real flip. When he gets a bit boring, he decides to roll up to a wooden pole in the ground. With four continuous back-flips, off he climbs on the wooden pole that has a tire around at the bottom. Having climbed on top of it, with one scratch on his back as a prelude to the upcoming unbelievable maneuver, he executes a perfect 360 back-flip. Apparently, the monkey is totally unaware of his breath-taking back-flip as he nonchalantly drops on the ground lying idly on the grass. Since his acrobatic movement leaves us awe-stricken, it is repeated in a slow motion manner in order for us to take another glimpse at the monkey’s amazing flip. As we can see, animals can do back-flips even better than us, humans. And wild animals like monkeys are not actually trained to do these back-flips. Bonobo doesn’t wait to catch his breath and he goes on doing a few more back-flips in the air, rolling in circles on the grass and getting all covered with it. This monkey is incredibly agile and the video is filled with his marvelous jumping actions. It is always fun to watch animal’s movements and their crazy acrobatic skills.

The weather has been cold and windy and the gorillas from the Twycross Zoo in England prefer to spend their days inside, even though they've got the option to go outside at any time they want. Why walk when you can roll? Shufai is definitely on a roll! Watch him having some fun rolling through his enclosure. He doesn't seem to want to stop. One roll after another, covering himself in the wood shavings. He is a ground-dweller and has a peculiar way of walking. Since walking for this gorilla is overrated, and jumping and hanging on trees is just boring, he decides to show his other apparently more adventurous side of throwing himself to the ground into an oblivious spin. Shufai will leave his four-footed walk called chuckle-walking for later, when he is not recorded on camera. His average travel takes about 0.3 to 0.6 miles per day but this baby gorilla will certainly make more by tossing around the cage. Thanks to his large muscles and arm strength for bending, this marathon-rolling gorilla is so funny to watch!

Fresh Snow Was The Perfect Refreshment For These Gorillas1m26s

Fresh Snow Was The Perfect Refreshment For These Gorillas

Way back when we were younger, we loved eating the fresh snow. It looked exactly like the snow cones our parents used to get us at fairs in the summer, only snow was tasteless (unless you count the occasional spect of dirt that came along with it). Also, “don’t eat the yellow snow” became a staple throughout our adult lives, although we probably had no idea what it meant back then. When snow fell in Twycross, Leicestershire, England these past week, the Silverback gorillas went out to have their own taste of the white stuff. Just like any human would, they would gather up the snow in ball and munch on it. Mmm, refreshing! The Gorilla Family from the Twycross Zoo in England woke up this morning to freezing weather and some snow. Even though the family doesn't like to stay outside in the cold, they do love to eat snowballs! Oumbi the big Silverback gorilla was the first to go outside to get himself some white stuff. He did his tightrope walk to the other side of the platform where he gathered the fresh snow together and ended up with a huge chunk of snow on his hand. He was joined by his older son Lope, who took advantage of his dad no looking to grab a huge chunk of snow from the roof and brought it inside with him to nibble on the frozen refreshment! In the end, we are all kids on the inside!

Clever Orangutan Youngster Build Its Own Hammock1m05s

Clever Orangutan Youngster Build Its Own Hammock

An incredible footage has emerged of a clever Sumatran orangutan youngster building itself a hammock high in the trees in Chester Zoo in England. Footage shows as the youngster is wrapping the sack around him and trying to attach it to the tree. When he is finally getting it to stay attached to the tree he starts seesawing and rocking around. Adorable! This orangutan youngster wasn’t too impressed in sleeping on tree branches, so he decided to make himself a hammock and rock himself to sleep. How genius! Despite being cooped up in England's Chester Zoo, this primate didn’t let the captivity to change his creativity! He somehow got to the idea to build himself a hammock high in the trees, in order to escape the crowds and enjoy some alone time. Watch as he expertly ties the ends of the blanket around the tree branch, leaving just enough slack to create a comfortable hammock. In the wild, orangutans sleep among the tree tops and make their nests using foliage folded carefully together. Nest building has an important social function among orangutans, as knowledge of how to construct them is passed down from mother to baby. It takes an orangutan until the age of three to be able to construct its own nest, which is a sign that it is ready to leave their mothers. With jute sack in its hand, the orangutan climbed the tree high enough to effectively separate himself from the zoo patrons below. His master plan was up and running, so he took his sack and found the perfect branch to mount his hammock. After some fails and trial errors, this craftsy youngster completed his mission and is probably resting in his nest as speak.

When These Cute Otters Get Hungry, Their Reaction Is Priceless

These are the adorable small clawed otters from the Birmingham Wildlife Park in England. When it's food time, they try to pass the time by playing with stones. Watch what happens when a keeper walks past with some food. The reaction is just priceless, jumping up and down the glass in anticipation! Otters are often observed playing and juggling with stones and pebbles, both in the wild and in ZOOs. There are several videos of their unique juggling technique that you can watch online. These adorable expert swimmers have been seen juggling one, two, even three rocks at the same time! Yet the question as to why they do it, its purpose and gain from it remains unanswered. A theory goes around that it has something to do with their eating behavior, since otters can also often be seen using rocks to smash shells so that they reveal the delicious meat inside. There also have been instances of otters defending their ‘tools’ from other otters. Asian small-clawed otters are the smallest extant otter species. They range in coastal regions from southern India to Southeast Asia including the islands of Sumatra, Java, Borneo and Palawan. Birmingham Wildlife Conservation Park is home to a unique collection of animals from across the world, including Red Pandas, lemurs, reptiles, meerkats, otters, birds, wallabies and a large collection of monkeys.

Shufai was born on September 24, 2016 and is the third baby for 22-year-old mother Ozala and 24-year-old father Oumbi. As well as being a joyous occasion for zoo staff and visitors, the birth is an important part of conservation efforts to save the species, as the number of Western lowland gorillas in the wild has dramatically declined by more than 60% in the last 20-25 years, and scientists predict they will become extinct in the next 20 years or so.
