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.
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.
