Orangutan 'pretends' to be a ghost for zoo visitors

LEICESTERSHIRE, England, May 16 (UPI) -- An orangutan donned a white sheet resembling a ghost while entertaining a group of visitors at the Twycross Zoo in England.

A video captured by the audience features the active orangutan swinging about inside his enclosure attempting to keep the white sheet on.


Balancing on a set of wires, the primate was seemingly putting on a show for the visitors swinging very close to the protective glass.

"Ooh I'm a ghost," a family can be heard saying in the clip as they laugh and cheer on the orangutan.

Back in December at a Barcelona Zoo, an orangutan fell over in laughter after a man performed a magic trick which involved the disappearing of a cherry inside a cup.
