Orangutan See, Orangutan Do

Located in the Tanjung Puting Reserve in Central Borneo (Kalimantan Tengah), Camp Leakey is a research facility for native orangutans.  The biologists don’t try to train the primates, they observe them while providing safety, food, and shelter, and let the ‘rangs live and let live.  The orangutans, however, observe the humans, and have learned some behavior from them, like rowing and perhaps the most surprising: doing laundry.  Watch the video to learn more!

 

Happy Monk(Ape)day :_)

Christmas Mouse

Twas three nights before Christmas, when all through the house, not a creature was stirring, except this one little mouse….

 

And just like the cute little mouse in this video, we put up our Christmas Tree today too, and it’s got me in the spirit of the holiday.  I hope everyone is having a joyful festive time.

 

Happy Bun(Rodent)day (|^_^|)
