Orangutans and bonobos seem to be the chill members of the family while humans and chimps are the pcp-chugging berserkers.

To be honest, the legend of this photo isn t exactly telling the truth. I happen to work with people that have this rehabilitation center in indonesia and the "snake infested" part is highly exagerated. Removing any animal, was it a snake, in a wildlife reserve is strictly prohibited. This man wasn t doing this at all in the water. We do even use rubber snakes to teach apes to fear those animals and develop natural reactions, which is key in such rehab programs. Snakes are part of what needs to be taught. The "lending a hand" part is true but don t forget those animals have been in extended contact with men. Some of the wild populations of the national Park where the rehabilitated specimens are sent even developped traits that are inherited from captive animals.

An ape and orangutan. United against the snakes. As it should be.

Most of those animals in rehab are former pets veing confiscated and which learn to be wild again through living in specific, human overseen environments.
