Orangutans Form ‘Very Special Bond’ with Otters Sharing Zoo Home

 Good News Notes:

“A group of orangutans living at the Pairi Daiza Zoo in Belgium is sharing a home with a family of Asian small-clawed otters — and they’re all getting along swimmingly!

The close relationship between the animals is on display in a series of photos shared by the zoo, which shows the two species happily co-existing and interacting with another.

Of course, in addition to being adorable, the decision to house the family of three orangutans — father Ujian, 24, mother Sara, 15, and their 3-year-old son Berani — together with the otters, who live in the river that runs through the primates’ enclosure, has a practical purpose.”
