Dear MEL Topic Readers,

Zoo shares adorable pictures of orangutans playing with their otter friends

Otters have long, slim bodies and relatively short limbs. They are, by nature, playful in the water with their offspring, pups. They usually eat fish and live up to 16 years.

An orangutan has a large body, a thick neck, long and strong arms, short and bowed legs, and no tail. It is mostly covered with long, reddish-brown hair. Orangutans only live in the rainforests of Borneo and Sumatra.

If you read these descriptions, they unlikely become good friends. However, in a zoo in Belgium, a family of orangutans and their cohabitants, otters, became close to each other. Since orangutans share 97% of their DNA with humans, they are very intelligent, sensitive, and emotional like us. Otters’ playful nature seems to be of interest to the intelligent primates there.

Enjoy seeing the photos of these unlikely friends in the zoo.
