The new friendship that no one can separate
Friendships between species are something that is always adorable. This time an unusual friendship, between a family of orangutans and some otters, has captured the love of the internet.
As reported by CNN , the orangutans and the otters were seen for the first time when the workers of the Pairi Daiza Zoo put the otters in the river that is in the habitat of the orangutans, since then a special and almost magical bond was created.
The photographs speak for themselves. The orangutan family tends to play by hiding and searching in their habitat.
“Otters hide under big tree trunks or wooden buildings, then Berani, the baby orangutan, comes looking for them. Every now and then they come out to make fun of him. It’s really amazing to see, ” said Mathieu, a zoo keeper.
The zoo invests heavily in the “enrichment” of its animal enclosures. “This means that not only size but also the quality of life is very important. One of the ways to do this (aside from hiding food, doing puzzles, organizing brain games, putting some new swings or records there) is by placing animal species that can interact with each other in the same enclosure, or have them see each other. . ” Mathieu continued.
“Our gorillas live together with colobus monkeys, our penguins live with seals, our kangaroos share an enclosure with pelicans, we have squirrels that live with bats, pygmy hippos with pelicans, giraffes with ostriches, Asian elephants with Asiatic gazelles, zebras with buffalo. … And so on ”, he concluded.
Share this beautiful friendship with your loved ones and make their day.
