Orangutan Reached Out To Help A Man Stuck In The River As He Protects The Ape From Snakes

Here’s a lending hand – Hop on!


This is an incredible moment an Orangutan assisted a man stuck in a river by presenting its outstretched arm.

The ape living in a protected conservation forest area in Borneo was spotted lending a hand to a conservationist who had been in the muddy river hunting for snakes.

The stuck-man, according to Mr. Prabhakar works for the Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation, a non-profit organization protecting endangered species.

The worker, clearing away snakes in a bid to protect the Orangutans got interrupted by the inquisitive ape but declined the Orangutan’s hand.

‘Someone told him there were snakes in the river. The worker went in there to clear out the bushes. An orangutan came to the banks, watching what he was doing. After this, he came closer and lend his hand. The worker moved away. When I asked him why, he responded: ‘It’s a wild animal, not any we are familiar with.’ Mr. Prabhaker explained.
