These baby orangutans look up to their mother in what is a very humanlike expression. Although they are not humans, these baby orangutans behave much like a small child begging his or her mom for something. It was fascinating as an observer to watch how familiar the interactions between the young and old orangutans were.

Location: Singapore Zoo, Singapore
