A zoo in Belgium has orangutans and otters that get along so well that it’s making the internet go crazy. People all over the world are amazed at the strange bond between these two very different animal types. It’s so cute to see.
When the zookeepers linked the otters’ river to the orangutans’ area, the two groups became friends at the Pairi Daiza Zoo in Brugelette. Since then, these two species have made a unique bond that is only sweet and almost magical.
Dad Ujian is 24 years old, Mom Sari is 15, and their son Berani is 4 years old. They live in the zoo. A cute picture shows Berani playing hide-and-seek with his Asian small-clawed otter friends.
Mathieu told Bored Panda that orangutans and otters love to play run games and hide-and-seek. The otters hide very well, either under big tree trunks or made of wood. The young orangutan named Berani tries to find them. The otters sometimes come out to play with him, which is really cool to see.
The orangutans’ new home was Pairi Daiza Zoo in Brazil in 2017. Because of this, the otters have loved playing with their “big furry friends,” especially baby Berani and dad Ujian. Both types of animals are having a better time because of this, and the project was a huge success.
Orangutans in Borneo and Sumatra, on the other hand, are in danger from palm crops. The Pairi Daiza Zoo has raised money to plant 11,000 trees in Borneo to help and repair a forest for orangutans that live there.
