A baby orangutan named Changi - pics


This may be harder than I thought: Changi the baby orangutan tries to gnaw through a chain at the zoo in Krefeld, Germany.

After unsuccessfully trying to chew through steel, Changi turns to Mom Lea for a comforting kiss at Germany's Krefeld Zoo.

1. I proudly proclaim shared lineage with these wonderful great apes.

Snarky comments aside (and undoubtedly some are tempted), I never cease to be amazed at the commonalities and obvious emotional intelligence of the "lower" primates. I could spend hours watching the chimps and gorillas--and of course the orangutans.

Adorable!
