You Won’t Believe Your Eyes: Orangutan Makes a Hammock Out of Her Blanket

This fascinating video shows Nemo, a 14-year-old orangutan, fashion a hammock out of a blanket.

Nemo wasn't too impressed with her sleeping quarters at a zoo in Thailand – so she decided to do something about it.

She expertly ties the ends of the blanket around the bars of her enclosure, leaving just enough slack to create a comfortable hammock.

In the wild, orangutans sleep among the tree tops and make their nests using foliage folded carefully together.

    Free Nemo!

  11.' Tanna Darby says:

    Now that we’ve found Nemo, can we please get her back to her rightful home?

  12.' Robert Alis says:

    Snug as a bug in a rug. Not sure of her history; was it a rescued animal? , from the wild or from private captivity? ….a lot of times, these animals are released back into the wild. Sometimes they may not fare so well there either, for many reasons. It’s always better to see an animal free in it’s own environment. Nonetheless, it showed some astonishing intelligence.

    •' Robert Alis says:

      I should have not addressed “her” as “it”. I truly believe in intelligence, given to “all” nature. We’ve taken too many things for granted. God’s intelligence is a gift that works through EVERYTHING.

  13.' Janet Protonentis says:

    Jessica Elliott, are you near the zoo in Thailand? Go visit Nemo 🙂

  14.' Effe Bense says:

    That’s an innocent in prison. Doesn’t that shock you guys?

  15.' Effe Bense says:

    I never put my foot in zoos or circus. If everyone would do the same that orangutang would be free in his jungle not in a cage.

  16.' Coleen Marturano says:

    Shane Fleming lol

  17.' Cassie Savage says:

    Troy – smart cookie. Shame about the damn cage.

    •' Troy Kenah says:

      Yes, seeing the obvious intelligence at work makes it worse doesn’t it? I’m pretty damn handy with a hessian sack too…not sure if I could matter the hammock though. Tomorrow’s mission.

    This is Incredible!!!
