This baby orangutan has just graduated!

After being rescued last year, the orangutan has now graduated from pre-school to baby school.

‘Didik’ the orangutan was rescued by International Animal Rescue in Borneo after he was found with a bullet lodged in his shoulder, abandoned in a shop, sick and starving.

He was severely malnourished and very hungry – but now he is great at foraging and can’t stop eating.

Lis Key, from International Animal Rescue, said: “This video below shows him climbing high, swinging through the trees in the forest at our centre.

“He was captured to be sold as a pet, and it is amazing to see the difference in him today.

“His love for food is helping him to grow strong every day and his curious and inquisitive nature makes him a very quick leaner – he is having no problem making friends!

“He is making amazing progress and has now graduated from pre-school and entered baby school.”
