Two Baby Orangutans Meet For The First Time

The baby orangutan who spent most of his short life trapped inside a chicken cage has met another ape for the very first time.

Budi was dying from malnutrition and too weak to move when a British charity discovered him in Borneo.

After making a remarkable recovery, an new astonishing video shows him interacting - and playing with - an equally adorable baby orangutan called Jemmi.

They have both been raised by workers at International Animal Rescue - the charity who care for them - hope their friendship means they will become less dependent on 'human babysitters'.

Recovery: Budi (top) was too weak to even open his mouth when they discovered him inside a chicken cage in December, but he is now strong enough to swing and play

Momentous: The charity's chief executive said the 'first meeting is a milestone in the development of both babies'

The video released by charity International Animal Rescue captures Budi and Jemmi's incredible first encounter and shows them curiously inspecting each other before exploring their surroundings.

Before Budi was rescued, his owner had never given him a single mouthful of solid food for fear it would be bad for him - leaving his tiny limbs swollen and bent.

But the wonderful new footage shows his transformation from that frail and helpless baby into an inquisitive animal who is now strong enough to swing from trees.

He looks visibly shy when he first meets new playmate, who looks delighted to have a new friend and reaches out to touch him.

Eight-month-old Jemmi was orphaned when her mother was killed and then illegally sold as a pet.

Despite Budi's initial hesitation, it's not long before the two are climbing the hammock together and a 'bond of friendship is beginning to form between them'.

The Chief Executive of the charity that rescued Budi hopes his new-found friendship with Jemmi gets them both used to orangutans so they can hopefully be released into the wild some day.

Alan Knight said: 'As they start to form bonds with each other and then with other orangutans in baby school, they will learn from each other how to behave in the forest and gradually shed their dependence on their human babysitters.'
