poor things. I can't help thinking they did something wrong with their mother - why would she have not fed them, and why did they remove them from her? My best guess is that they interfered with her during/soon after the birth, or they've handled their mother too much and depriving her of a fairly natural life (as much as possible)

I pray every night for any animal that lives in China. Now I will be praying for these two. Most of the horrendous cruelties to animals take place in China or because of chinese medicine. They put dogs in baskets and slowly burn them alive, they do horrible awful things to cats and dogs and bears and raccoons and monkeys. China is responsible for the 200 elephants recently killed for their Ivory. China is responsible for most of the endangered species that are still being killed because of their black market. So before you start celebrating these Orangutan babies in China, pray for their safe keeping.

They are gorgeous, and like all animals have qualities that humans will never have. Let us all keep learning from the world's amazing animals. Much Love and wishes for a great life to these adorable babies! Rosi Caswell Animal Whisperer Therapist
