The Orangutan and the Hound

One day, Bhagavan "Doc" Antle of The Institute of the Greatly Endangered and Rare Species (yes, with the clever acronym T.I.G.E.R.S.) was taking Surya the orangutan on their daily elephant ride, when they happened upon a hound dog by the river.

And so began one of the unlikeliest friendships ever. Check out what happened next in this National Geographic Channel clip: hit play or go to Link - Thanks SparkS!

I loved when the ape (okay it's not an ape but I can't spell orang....) pries open the dogs mouth and
drops a treat in it from his mouth. Then he quickly clamps the dogs mouth shut as if to say 'I'm not letting go til you swallow it'. GGG

Plus when he's holding the dog his huge grin cracks me up.
