Orangutan At Japanese Zoo Cools Itself With Wet Towel

The intelligent primate was watched by stunned visitors at the Tama Zoological Park in Tokyo as it dipped the cloth into a pool of water and used it to wipe its forehead.

Remarkably, the big orangutan shows gentle poise as it wrings out the object with both hands in a hauntingly human-esque manner.

An inquisitive little friend quickly joined to have a look at all the commotion, but the larger orangutan wasn't in the mood to share and continued with its routine.

Towards the end of the footage the orangutan then gives his 'bench' a bit of wipedown and resembles a bar tender cleaning up after a big night.

Full story here.
