ATHERSTONE, England, June 2 (UPI) -- An industrious orangutan at a British zoo displayed his ingenuity by using a blanket to build his own hammock inside his enclosure.

The video, posted to YouTube by user SloggerVlogger, shows an orangutan at the Twycross Zoo in Atherstone, England, tying his blanket to hanging straps in his enclosure.

The orangutan climbs into his homemade hammock for what initially appears to be a relaxing time, until another orangutan shows up and starts pushing the hammock like a swing.

The orangutan swings back and forth in the hammock a few times until one end of the blanket comes loose and dumps him out on the ground.
