One day, a zoo keeper was walking past the Orangutan enclosure when he noticed that “Rocky” the Orangutang was sitting on a tree branch, reading not one but two books, the Bible and Darwin’s Origin of Species.
Even though he knew that Orangutans are very intelligent creatures, the zoo keeper was totally surprised by what he saw.
So, he went up to the bars and asked Rocky, “Why are you reading both of those books?”
“Well”, the Orangutan replied, “I just wanted to know if I was my brother’s keeper or my keeper’s brother!”
Did you know that a famous Orangutan called “Rocky” has been the first primate that has learned to mimic human speech. You can find out more in this article from BBC Earth.
