Cameras Capture Very Rare Footage Of An Orangutan Birth
A 19-year-old Sumatran orangutan named Dana, gave birth to a healthy baby at Durrell Wildlife Park. Immediately after the delivery the proud mum began doing something we rarely get to see on camera.
“Dana is doing everything she should to care for her baby. We’re thrilled with the outcome so far, Tara is proving to be a good mother.” said Mark Brayshaw, the zoo’s animal curator.
The Sumatran orangutan is an endangered species, just a few of them remain on Earth. Here’s never-seen-before footage of the ‘miracle birth’ of a Sumatran orangutan caught live on video.
