Pongo The Baby Orangutan and His Mama Are Just Like Us

Last Friday, a baby orangutan named Pongo marked his 1st birthday at Zoo Atlanta in Georgia. The Huffington Post featured a video of Pongo and his mama acting remarkably “human-like” along with a series of cuddly, adorable photographs.

Pongo almost looks like a human baby. So much so, it’s freaky in some shots. But the mother/son bond captured in these photographs is not quite unlike the one we’re all familiar with. Happy Friday all!
