Watch this orangutan looking cool in a found pair of shades

A visitor at a zoo in Indonesia accidentally dropped her sunglasses inside the orangutan enclosure, but they didn't go to waste. Remarkably, a curious orangutan picked them up and slipped them right on. With a baby in tow, the shaded primate posed as a human in front of spectators, looking pretty cool indeed. Once boredom set in, the orangutan flung the sunglasses towards the crowd, and caught a bunch of tossed leaves in return. And no, the owner of the glasses never got them back, but she said it made for "a very good story."
