Ginger the ham

One of the most exciting things that happened when we zookeepers visited the St Louis Zoo (as part of our conference activities) was celebrity baby orangutan Ginger came close to the window!

She really hammed it up.

It's amusing to see people who work with animals for a living get all squealy and excited to see yet another animal. (I was squealing right along with everyone)

Aww, her mother showing her stuff is the cutest. But I would say that since I have a little baby primate of my own now.

Oh sorry! Did you not know? I have a 7 month old. He's great. I was a sceptical about the endeavour when it was first suggested but it's turned out to be the best idea ever.

I think the relationship between orangutan mothers and their babies is one of the most beautiful ones in nature.
