The Daily Treat: Mama Orangutan Cuddles Her Newborn
Just in time for Mother’s Day, photographic proof that a mother’s love knows no species
A happy Mother’s Day, indeed.
A week after giving birth, Sumatran orangutan Sarah was snapped giving her newborn a sweet peck inside their enclosure at the ABQ BioPark Zoo in Albuquerque, N.M. Just like a human mother, she gingerly cradled her little one before leaning in – and judging from that smile on her face, the babe’s already lapping up the attention!
The pair were fêted with a Saturday baby shower – just in time for Mother’s Day. During the festivities, the park revealed that the tyke is a female.
We’re going to assume Sarah’s enjoying the perfect Mother’s Day. RELATED: Mama Squirrel Saves the Day
