Orangutan And Pregnant Woman Share A Moving Exchange

Orangutan And Pregnant Woman Share A Moving Exchange


"I Think I'm Going To Cry!"

Morgain Cole Abbott probably wasn't expecting to be moved to tears by a visit to the zoo last month. Zoo days don't normally become this intense and emotional - but they also don't normally involve kisses from a giant ape. The sweet moment was captured on video by Abbott's companions.

In the video, Rajang is referred to as a "she," which is understandable given the loving and gentle nature shown. It might surprise you to know that the orangutan is actually a male who is about 50 years old. Rajang the Orangutan has a well-documented thing for pregnant women. Abbott is not the first pregnant woman Rajang has been filmed cozying up to through the viewing glass of his enclosure.

In fact, in September he was recorded tenderly kissing the glass to get to the baby bump of a woman who claims Rajang looked like he had a tear in his eye when he did it.

Abbott is calling for the people who have viewed the video to donate to Orangutan.org.

"Let's take this incredible moment and make an even bigger impact, in the hope that one day my baby will be able to see these phenomenal creatures in the wild, safe from harm."
