SN_ORANGUTAN_FLOSS_2.jpg
A health conscious orangutan looked to avoid a visit to the dentist when she decided to floss her teeth after an afternoon snack.  The clever ape picked up a rubber band and began cleaning the gaps between her teeth - even checking to see what it collected.<br />
<br />
At one stage, she even appeared to strum the band with her tongue like a guitar - much to the amusement of the gathering crowd.  Photographer Monica Anantyowati watched the orangutan at play during a visit to Surabaya Zoo in East Java, Indonesia.  SEE OUR COPY FOR DETAILS.<br />
