Look who’s five today!

There’s a special birthday girl on site today as our loveable Sprout turns five – and what’s better than celebrating with bubbles!

Senior Keeper Jodie Dryden showered our youngest Bornean orang utan with the soapy bubble mix – and Sprout couldn’t quite believe her eyes as the bubbles floated over the enclosure’s moat towards her – wonderfully captured by DZG photographer, Jason Skarratt.

Jodie said: “Just like a typical five-year-old, Sprout loves playing so we thought for her birthday we’d treat her to the bubbles and see what she made of them.

“She was so intrigued watching them that when one landed on her hand, she sat stock still staring at it until it popped.

“But she was soon stretching out trying to scoop them up in her hand and even tried to catch a few in her mouth – it was very amusing to watch.”
