Who ape all the pies? Orangutan kicks back with a full belly in the midday sun


This orangutan soaked up the midday sun at Taman Safari Park near Jakarta, Indonesia looking a little full around the middle

Louise, a retired social worker, said: 'These orangutans were all in a special enclosure which was a wide-open, lush, green area.

'There were about 20 orangutans and they were going about their daily lives, which looked much like ours on occasion.

'It was around noon time at the park and it was rather hot.

The sedentary creature was too lazy to even swing on the trees and ropes

'There was an area where the orangutans could swing in the trees but I only saw one using the rope.

'The orangutans in question seem to lead a sedentary way of life.

'The really plump ones look like females.

'There were male orangutans in the enclosure and they were all of normal weight and more animated.' Louise, from California, United States, added: 'Later in my trip, I observed orangutans in the wild in Borneo in a conservation area.

'It seemed to me that the orangutans in captivity used more human-like gestures.

In addition to the overfed orangutan, this guy looked like he had a bit of a headache
