Video: Super-cute video shows baby orangutan climbing a tree for the FIRST TIME

Have your say

A wildlife charity has released a video of a baby orangutan traumatised by years in captivity climbing a tree for the first time.

Joss, who lives in Borneo, was left profoundly traumatised after being kept for two years as a pet, but she is already on the road to recovery. Videos and photos released by charity International Animal Rescue (IAR) show the primate climbing and feeding in a tree - showing no signs of the abnormal behaviour she displayed before she was rescued. Although Joss remains in quarantine at the International Animal Rescue Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre, she has been taken out for short periods to learn to climb.
