Sibu The Orangutan Prefers His Mates Blonde And Tattooed, Zoo Keepers Frustrated

sibu orangtuanSibu the orang-utan has miffed his Dutch keepers by refusing to mate with females and showing sexual interest only in tattooed human blondes.

Apenheul Primate Park hoped Sibu would become its breeding male when he arrived two years ago, but orang-utans aren't his type.

"He chases them, or ignores them, but he doesn't do what he should do," said a spokeswoman for the park.

Instead, Sibu fancies his female keepers, especially blondes. That, the spokeswoman said, was common for orang-utans but Sibu has a fetish for tattoos, harking back to a heavily tattooed keeper who reared him.

"Orang-utans have special interests in special subjects. Sibu happens to like tattoos," she said.

The park hasn't given up on Sibu, 31. He showed an amorous interest in a female orang-utan while living in England and keepers hope he will find love when reunited with her in a new enclosure in Chester, England.

You do know orangutans are apes like us, not monkeys, right?

Other than that, this is quite sad. Perhaps he can be cajoled into mating by a threesome with a female orang and a blond tattooed human. Or maybe they could find a leucistic female orang, shave an arm, and give her a tatoo.

Lol an orangutan having relations with a blond tattooed woman, that'll be the day you see Abe Lincoln pop out of his grave and square dance naked in front of the white house!
