This 14-year old female Orangutan, from a zoo in Thailand, is so innovative and smart! She is able to make a hammock with minimal material and it looks quite cozy as well! Orangutans are the most intelligent primates. They spend most of their times in trees and their hair is usually reddish-brown. A lot of bonding occurs between the mothers and their offspring in the first couple of years. They love to eat fruit and it is a major part of their diet.

It is amazing to see that this Orangutan is able to make a hammock all by herself, she makes it look quite easy. It is fascinating to see her tying the fabric onto the bars making appropriate strong knots. Orangutans are a lot more clever than we think, they can create something interesting from the materials they possess in front of them. Orangutans in the wild make their sleeping beds with only branches and materials from the trees. Most of us would probably find it difficult to create something practical with no instructions. Orangutans are very gentle practical animals. Just look at this 14-year old female Orangutan, she is incredible!
