This baby orangutan is a real mama’s boy

Orangutans are primarily solitary creatures, except for the first 2 years of life when they’re completely dependent on their mothers. The first 4 months are spent literally glued to mom, never leaving her side. Once the ape starts developing climbing skills, at about the age of 2, distance starts to grow between mother and infant. Pongo here is 2-and-a-half, but is still quite the mama’s boy.
