An amazing video has emerged from the US of an orangutan appearing to interact with a woman who suffered from burns. In the clip, captured on July 14 in the Indiana ZOO in Putnam County, IN, the primate attentively observes Darci Miller whilst she shows her burn scars, capturing the attention of everyone present at the enclosure.

''The orangutan was completely interested in my burn scars and recent surgery sights,'' the filmer later wrote online. 'I am a burn survivor from 2015, yes it has its up and down, but this particular day made me feel really good about myself,'' she added.

Darci went with her boyfriend to the ZOO to see Rocky the orangutan, but what they were not expecting was the primate curiosity of them as well. When the woman approached the enclosure, the orangutan kept pointing his fingers to her bandages, clearly asking to see what she was hiding underneath. Darci was all too eager to oblige the curious animal, so she would peel off her bandages to let the distant relative take a closer look at her injuries.

Rocky would even look straight into Darci鈥檚 eyes, as if he understands the pain she is in. In return, she puts her palm on the glass, as a sign of thank you.

      'Rocky would even look straight into Darci’s eyes, as if he understands the pain she is in. In return, she puts her palm on the glass, as a sign of thank you.'..... Captive and living in a zoo for the amusement/enjoyment of humans - yes I'm sure he does understand her pain.

      It should not be surprising that a female monkey is sentient and able to express and communicate as we are all sentient beings. You see, the orangutan was attempting to tell her this. 馃馃檮

        Rocky is a male orangutan BUT I've found that almost all animals have more compassion than the average human.
