Now for some Monkey Business!

Post  Doogs on Mon Apr 13, 2015 1:31 pm

Meet Tuah the spiky-haired orphan orangutan who just made her debut at Salt Lake City Zoo

Now 5 months old, the 14-inch, 11-pound Tuah is starting to crawl
Tuah was revealed to the public on Saturday at Salt Lake City's Hogle Zoo
Tuah's parents died shortly after she was born
Tuah's father was Eli, an orangutan who became famous for correctly predicting the Super Bowl winner seven years in a row
Once she is ready, Tuah's sister Acara will care for her instead of humans

Oh that's so sad that Tuah's parents died shortly after she was born but how lucky that the zoo were able to step in and even better that her sister Acara will care for her.

A real Group Hug story. Thanks for sharing Doogs.

That is tragic, but fortunate that the keepers could step in, and she will still be with family after.
