It might only be February, but Mandi the orangutan was determined to make sure her windows were sparkling.

Visitors to the Allwetter Zoo in Munster, Germany, were left highly amused as she pressed her lips against the glass and tried to suck the moisture off, before wiping the surface with her forearm.

Suzan van der Heeden, 47, captured house-proud Mandi on video.

The caterer, who was born in the Netherlands but lives in Germany, said: “It was a real joy and very entertaining to see the orangutan licking water from the window.

“It was around noon and the window was in the shake, and with the sun shining it was covered in moisture.

“She did it two or three times for about 30 seconds each time.”
