    Default Mother orangutan cradles her baby at Germany's Dresden Zoo


    Daisy, an orangutan resident of Germany's Dresden Zoo, gave birth last week to her second offspring. The baby, a male, has been given the name Dodi -- and it's plain to see that Daisy is a devoted mother to the little fellow (who, according to the German news source Bild, weighs only 1.5 pounds).
    Such devotion to their offspring is typical of orangutan mothers; in the wild, young orangutans typically live with their mothers until they're 6 or 7 years old. (Daisy's older offspring, a female named Djasinga, is 6 years old and moved to the Berlin Zoo last year.)
    More photos of Daisy and Dodi after the jump!

    OMG, so cute!

    We went to the zoo and there was a little orangutan playing with his mom and coming up to the window and playing with the vistors by hitting the glass and running. We about died from cuteness.

    Of course, the San Diego Zoo is awesome! We go there so much that my daughter asks about the "animals at zoo" on Fridays because she thinks it's zoo day!

    Well, I would be jealous if this had happened a few years ago.... Colin is looking a little worn out nowadays.

    BTW, I can watch the baby orang while they are gone!!!
