WOW No wthat is one clever Orangutan I bet he's seen humans do that, and worked out why, and is copying it. I've seen clips of them in rescue centres where humans have washed in the river with soap, and they copied that as well

I agree WS, they are very smart and I'm sure they'll have seen someone else doing it and just copied them cheers Wink
