What is an orangutan's reaction when he sees a pregnant woman?  His response is very tender... and very human.


Videos like this reinforce the common bonds between humans and apes.  This orangutan's reaction to seeing the belly of the pregnant woman is innocent and sweet, a sign of hope and symbol of caring for the woman and the unborn child.   I have to wonder if this was a learned behavior or something innate in the ape's genetic buildup.  Either way, it shows that these fine animals are compassionate.
