There’s no doubt that apes are among the most caring animals in the world. Just take a look at Koko and her kittens. But even knowing that, the way this large orangutan reacted when he saw a mom-to-be caught me completely off-guard and I have to admit, it got me teared up.
This woman was visiting the local zoo with her family, when this big male orangutan seemed interested in her big belly. She came closer to the glass and then he did something incredible. He started caressing it just as an expecting dad would, but it’s when he kissed the little bun in the oven that really got me.
