The animals live together in the “Pairi Daiza” zoo as part of a program designed to keep these animals healthy and captive.
According to Zoo spokesman Matteo Guidefroy, they must be “entertained, challenged, and kept emotionally and physically busy at all times.”
As part of the program, a family of small claws of Asian water beavers was allowed to live in the river that runs through the area that embraces an Orangutan (orangutan) family, which includes a father called Eugenian at the age of 24, and a 15-year-old mother named Sari , And their 3-year-old son Birani.
Guidveroi said that beavers “are really listening out of the water on the Orangutan monkey island to play with their fur-covered friends,” adding that Birani and Ojian have developed a close relationship with their neighbors.
“It makes life more enjoyable and exciting for these two types of animals, which makes it a very successful experience,” Guidefroy said.
This monkey family arrived at the zoo in 2017.
Orangutans share 97% of their DNA with humans, and therefore, it takes a lot of attention to keep them busy.
Guidefroy confirmed that zoo employees keep monkeys entertained all day long through mental games, puzzles, and other activities to train their intelligence.
Orangutan monkeys are under threat from palm oil plantations in their habitats in Borneo and Sumatra.
Guidveroi told CNN the zoo raised funds to plant 11,000 trees to restore a forest in Borneo.
