An orangutan gets taken in by a zoo visitor’s magic trick – and rolls around in hysterics at the disappearing act. In it, the ape watches from its enclosure as a man produces a polystyrene cup and lid. He places an unripened chestnut inside but then secretly removes it. And when the ape is shown the empty cup he sits in disbelief before cracking up.
If you were moved as much as we were, seeing just how similar an orangutan is to a human, you can help save our cousins from extinction in the wild by supporting conservation work. The Orangutan Foundation International (OFI) is a leading conservation organization in the Borneo, and your donations could help. Please consider donating here: https://orangutan.org/donations/
