Adorable Baby Orangutan at San Diego Zoo

by Holy Cuteness on December 5, 2013

From Youtube; “A two-week-old, female Sumatran orangutan provided a big treat for visitors at the San Diego Zoo today when she and her mother, Indah, came out into the exhibit in public view for only the second time since the baby’s birth. The newborn clung to her mother’s chest as Indah climbed the ropes, cargo nets and sway poles in her habitat, stopping periodically at various perches. Indah gazed upon and gently cradled her baby as Zoo guests and employees watched with delight and took countless photos of the pair.”
