Orangutan Steals Tourists Shirt

When a tourist approached the bars of the orangutan cage at a zoo in the Philippines to get a closer look, he didn't expect to lose his shirt. He got more than he bargained for when the cheeky animal made a grab for his clothing, tugged it off his back and eventually worked out how to put the T-shirt on himself.

In his attempts to mock the tourist, the clever orangutan attempts to put the T-shirt over his head, but a little confused, he only succeeds in putting it over his head and obscuring his vision. Wearing the shirt like a headscarf, Carlo bounds around the cage before considering another attempt at putting it on properly. Much to the amusement of bystanders at the Davao Crocodile Park, the primate's second attempt to dress himself is more successful than the first. Experts have extensively studied the species for their learning capability.
