    Orangutans are so smart and funny and humanlike. They are so much more likeable than baboons who are just a bunch of thieving greedy rodent like pests!

    Note how she’s smart enough to attack the lock, not the door of the cage. And she’s a baby.

    I would be the worst organgutan carer in the world! I would never not be able to cuddle them constantly and bond with them! 😭💕 it broke my whole heart when they ripped her from her surrogate mothers leg and locked her in the cold hard metal cage all she wants is a mommy because her real mommy was murdered by evil humans!

    I feel so sorry for Chiquita. She's bonded with the care worker and that's who she feels safe with. I mean she was a baby when she lost her mom.

  • wupperelfe

    They shouldn't have let just one nurse care for Chiquita - like a human child that gets overly attached to Mom if there's no one else around. Separation anxiety is bound to occur.

  • Amy Zoey

    I love Chiquita! I’d think some desensitization could help as well as a very systematic plan of transferring attention from “ mama” to one or two other staff members. At least, it works with the children I support with developmental delays. It’s a slow process but it works when done with consistency and good positive reinforcement. It’s important to continue with the baby steps of introducing the new caretaker in without taking many back steps to mama doing everything all over again. It works! 😉💛💛💛💛🥰🥰🥰🤣

    This is sad, the baby just doesn't want to be separated from who she sees as her mother. In the wild she would still be with her mother at her age.

    Strange question but could a monkey theoretically breast feed from a human and be fine? Though obviously the human wouldn't unless the monkey was very gentle lol

      On Smithsonian channel they have Orangutan School, which isn’t free. However, you can do a free one week trial to watch all ten full episodes. The first two are on IRbin at no charge.

    It would be hard not to spoil this baby. If I was her surrogate mom it would be hard when she cries. She is a sweetheart! Simply adorable 😃.

    Warum nicht einfach dem Baby geben was es braucht, die Nähe zu "seiner" Mutti? Es ist offensichtlich, dass sie eben länger braucht, wo ist das Problem? Nur wer satt ist, kann sich dem Leben zuwenden.

    • Synke Seelenweib
      Synke Seelenweib

      @Gabe Nason Christiana H. Why not giving the baby what it needs, the contact to "its" mother? It's obvious, that it she needs more time, what's the problem? Only who is well-fed, can embrace life. Synke Seelenweib Thought so, too. Especially, when I read, that the little ones usually stay with the mother for 6 years. And she is only 3. But I could not stop kissing and cuddling the little one, I would be all wrong in this job.

    • Synke Seelenweib
      Synke Seelenweib

      Das dachte ich auch. Vor allem, wenn ich lese, dass die Kleinen normalerweise 6 Jahre lang bei der Mutter bleiben. Und sie ist erst 3. Aber ich könnte auch nicht aufhören die Kleine zu küssen und zu herzen, ich wäre also ganz falsch in dem Job.
