Orangutans are among the most intelligent primates. Their genetic makeup is very similar to that of humans. According to the evolutionary theory, humans evolved from apes, so it is not an unknown fact that apes have similar traits as that of humans; motherly instinct is one of them. Even though all of the species have motherly instinct in them, it is rare for animals to take care of babies of other species. However, in this video we can see this orangutan taking care of a tiger cub.
This orangutan apparently saw some zookeepers taking care of the tiger cubs. When she saw this, she wanted to do the same. So, zookeepers allowed these tiger cubs to be near this orangutan. From that very day, zookeepers saw that this orangutan almost all the time played with these tiger cubs and even fed them.
