After seeing a pregnant woman with a spot on her belly, this orangutan approached and brought her to cry! Tenderness.
For most people, a trip to the zoo doesn’t usually come with a moment you will remember for the rest of your life. But for Morgain Cole Abbott, that is exactly what she got when she visited the Colchester Zoo in England.
After walking up to see the zoo’s 48-year-old orangutan, Rajang, Abbot began pointing out her pregnant belly to the primate and watching him respond. But then, he started to move towards the glass and in a gesture of love and kindness, kissed the window right next to Abbot’s baby bump.

Rajang has offered similar affections to other zoo-goers, but this moment just shows how much empathy and love these animals actually feel.
Because of this incredible life-moment, Abbott decided she wanted to make a serious effort to help endangered orangutans in the wild. And she thought the best people to encourage to help would be the ones watching her video…
