Orangutan and other primates share a lot in common with us humans, such as an astonishing 98% of our DNA. But who knew they also love seeing magic tricks?
In this video, a zoo visitor entertained this orangutan with a “magic trick” by making a chestnut disappear inside a styrofoam cup. First, he showed the orangutan the chestnut inside the cup and pulled it up for him to see.
And now folks, one perfectly normal chestnut inside a perfectly normal styrofoam cup.
He put on a lid, gave the cup a shake. And with a slight of hand barely noticed by his very eager audience, he hid the chestnut. And POOF! The magical chestnut is gone.
Shake shake shake and one disappeared chestnut coming right up!
Watch how the adorable Orangutan reacted when the chestnut disappeared and reappeared in this video below!
His reaction is even strikingly similar to how some of us humans react with a perfectly hilarious joke or trick by falling over backwards! Now I can’t wait to try this trick at our local zoo!
Share this adorable “magic trick” and the magical reaction of the orangutan to your friends! If you were moved as much as we were, seeing just how similar an orangutan is to a human, you can help save our cousins from extinction in the wild by supporting conservation work. The Orangutan Foundation International (OFI) is a leading conservation organization in the Borneo, and your donations could help. Please consider donating here: https://orangutan.org/donations/
Kind Man Buys Turtles in Food Market and Releases Them into the Sea
In doing so, he saves not only the turtles but us humans too.
Almost all types of sea turtles are now in danger of extinction as many countries consent to marine turtle fishing. They are sold in local markets and slain for their meat, skin, eggs, and shells. Apparently, many people have a taste for turtle meat and eggs while others use them for medicine and religious rites.
So, when Aaron Culling and his colleague, Mark found a pair of sea turtles on sale at a local food market in Papua New Guinea, they didn’t hesitate in purchasing the animals for 50 bucks.
But, instead of making themselves some tasty turtle soup or some other exotic dish from its meat, Aaron drove 5 km towards the direction of a beach. There, he released the turtles back to the ocean....
Man Straps GoPro on His Dog to See What it Does When it’s Home Alone
GoPro gave him a glimpse of what his dog’s day was like without him.
Have you ever wondered what your dog does whenever you leave him or her at home alone? Surely they don’t turn the music or the television on during those long, lonely hours or cook food for you while they’re at it. And if your beloved pet had already passed that stage of rowdy behavior; tearing down your couch and pillows and turning vegan with your houseplants---then it’s all the more intriguing.
Mike the Intern wanted to find out what his loyal, four-legged best friend does on his alone time. So, he strapped a GoPro on his dog and later uploaded the video on his YouTube channel. People have been securing the amazing equipment on various animals to enable them to “see” things and places from a different perspective.
And as for Mike, well, he found out how his dog felt, and it’s heartbreaking....
Which Side of Your Brain is Dominant? Take This Simple Test to Find Out!

The Left-Brain Right-Brain Theory suggests that one side of the brain is dominant over the other and that each side controls different types of thinking. According to this theory, a person with left-brain dominance is more analytical, logical, and objective while a person with right-brain dominance is more thoughtful, intuitive, and subjective.
Ultimately, it is said that the dominant side of our brain greatly influences our thinking and determines our inclination towards certain interests....
