COLORADO SPRINGS, May 25 (UPI) -- An orangutan at a Colorado zoo responded to a female visitor's amorous advances by blowing her kisses through the glass of his enclosure.

A video posted to YouTube by Amanda Briggs shows the woman making eye contact with the curious primate through the glass of the orangutan enclosure at the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo.

The woman blows a kiss to the orangutan through the glass, leading the orangutan to mimic the gesture and blow kisses back.

The orangutan shows his teeth to the woman, who responds by mimicking the expression and offering some advice: "You need to brush your teeth!"

The woman leans in to blow another kiss to the orangutan, who then puts his lips on the glass.

"What is he doing?" the woman asks.

"Either trying to blow you kisses or bite your face off, one of the two," another woman says from off-camera.
