A Wild Orangutan Can Cut Tree Branches Using A Saw – BBC Spy In The Wild

An orangutan has been captured performing DIY better than some humans. The incredible new footage reveals a female great ape using a saw to skilfully divide a branch in two. The talented ape uses her right hand to hold the tool and her feet to grip the tree branch like a vice. She even blows away the sawdust to inspect her work like a true craftsman. She previously learnt this skills by watching builders at work in the region. When she spots a robot orangutan copying her behavior, the great ape immediately becomes more competitive. The scenes were filmed in Borneo as part of the UK BBC One series ‘Spy In The Wild’, which features eerily realistic robots disguised as a series of different animals.
