This pregnant mother got a huge, adorable surprise after visiting the zoo!
Morgain Cole Abbot, a pregnant woman who was visiting the Colchester Zoo near Essex, UK, got the most adorable surprise in the world! As the mother viewed and orangutan called Rajang, she showed him her baby bump, and he just couldn’t get enough of it! Rajang, who is 48 years old, would not take his eyes off of it. Gently, he touched the glass where her belly was, attempting to pet her. Out of nowhere, he gave it a great big kiss!
Morgain was so touched by the actions that she started crying! We all should know that primates are far more intelligent than we give them credit for. Moments such as this allows us to witness that they are really no different than human beings. In this one video, Rajang observed Morgain’s belly, seemed to acknowledge the situation, felt emotions enough to pet her, and even gave her a cuddly kiss. If that isn’t human-like, I don’t know what is!
“I think I’m going to cry,” she said of the event.
Morgain insisted that Rajand knew she was pregnant immediately. He started pointing at the bump, fully absorbed by it once she stood in front of him. Rajang has reacted this way before for another lucky expecting mother, Kayley Bethany.
“I couldn’t believe it when he bent down to kiss it,” she said to Daily Mail. “It was incredible and really showed his intelligence as he knew straight away I was pregnant and singled me out.”
The mother had felt so inspired and touched by the events that she and her husband began planning to raise money for a foundation that helps orangutans, the Orangutan Foundation.
“I really do hope some people have donated. If every person donated even one pound, it would have raised a brilliant amount for such a good cause,” Morgain stated.
