Animals Video

By Kristiana Hall 

An orangutan has been caught scaring his peers wearing a ghost-like costume and jumping behind them. 

The video shows the monkey wearing a giant white plastic bag as he plays with other smaller orangutans. 

Nicola Walpen, 32, captured the clip while working at the Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation earlier this year. 

She added: “The video shows orangutan orphan Julien is playing with his classmates in the forest school of one of our reintroduction programs. 

“He is using a bag as a costume, which makes him a pretty convincing ghost. 

“We are non-profit organisation dedicated to the conservation of the Bornean orangutan and its habitat, in cooperation with local communities, the Indonesian Ministry of Forestry and international partner organisations.”
