A cheeky orangutan at a Beijing zoo has gone viral after taking a very cheeky pose with a female tourist.
A tourist’s trip to a zoo became intimate very quickly when an orangutan stroked and kissed her in a moment captured on video, reports the New York Post†
The woman, TikTok user @fongpang2012, was visiting Safari World in Bangkok in late June when the playful animal got a little handy.
A video shows the primate grabbing her breasts and even kissing her on the cheek as she tried to pose for a photo.
The woman was seen sitting on a swing at the zoo, ready for a sweet tourist snap when the cheeky monkey comes up behind her and moves to her paws, molding her breasts and giving her several attempts at kisses on her cheek.
The monkey grins wildly as people take pictures and film the interaction.
The woman – albeit surprised – giggles as the orangutan continues to kiss her cheek.
In defense of the offending orangutan, another video the woman posted showed this cheeky monkey was capable of a bit of chivalry — gently kissing her hand and posing with his arm around her shoulder.
It’s unclear (although it seems somewhat likely) whether the orangutan was trained to surprise tourists in this way.
Orangutans are closely related to humans and share 97 percent of DNA, according to the Orangutan Project. They are great apes, unlike apes.
According to WWF, orangutans are only found in the rainforests of the Southeast Asian islands of Borneo and Sumatra.
Living in tropical forests, they prefer the river valleys and floodplains of their respective islands and spend almost their entire lives in trees.
