If you have ever wondered how smart orangutans are, you might be surprised by this viral video that shows one of them asking a visitor to share a gummy snack. The video was taken at the Louisville Zoo in Kentucky, where a woman named Taylor was visiting the orangutan exhibit with her sisters. She noticed that one of the orangutans, named Amber, was pointing at her bag and seemed curious about what was inside.
Taylor decided to hold her bag closer to the window and unzip it, hoping to find out what Amber wanted. She took out some of the items in her bag, such as a wallet and a phone, but Amber was not interested. She kept pointing at the bag and looking inside. Finally, Taylor pulled out a bag of fruit snacks, and Amber’s eyes lit up. She pointed at the gummy and then at the chain link fence, indicating that she wanted Taylor to pass it through.
Taylor was amazed by Amber’s intelligence and communication skills. She said that she felt like she was having a conversation with the orangutan, who seemed very polite and patient. She also said that she did not give Amber the gummy, because she was not sure if it was safe for her to eat. Instead, she allegedly gave her a thumbs up and smiled.
The video has been viewed millions of times on YouTube and other social media platforms. Many people have commented on how adorable and clever Amber is, and how they would love to visit her at the zoo. Some have also praised Taylor for being respectful and responsible towards the orangutan.
Orangutans are among the most intelligent primates in the world. They can use tools, learn sign language, and even mimic human speech. They are also very social and emotional animals, who form strong bonds with their family and friends. Unfortunately, they are also endangered due to habitat loss, poaching, and illegal pet trade.
