Orangutang Met Recovering Burn Victim, His Reaction To Seeing Her Has Stunned the Internet

By - 13th August 2017

We’ve been saying it for years, we have a lot in common with our monkey pals. Opposable thumbs, body structure, finger prints to name a few. They also enjoy humour and communicating much like us.

It was your typical day at the Indiana Zoo for most, but it would become an unforgettable memory for one person.

Darci Miller arrived at the orangutan area of the zoo. Miller, much like other patrons were viewing the animals behind the glass but she noticed one of the animals staring at her.

Rocky the orangutan started signalling to Darci as he curiously looked at her shoulder and arm. Darci was a burn victim and received some serious injuries in 2015.

She was in the process of healing and the curious primate wanted to know what had happened. This creature looked so concerned for her health and it’s melting our hearts.
