An orangutan in Malaysia is undergoing cataract surgery, in what is the first such operation on a great ape.
Aman, 19, went under the knife for just over two hours earlier today at a wildlife centre in Borneo. He’s expected to recover quite well but there’s no guarantee he’ll have perfect vision again. According to reports, such surgery has been carried out on animals like dogs but never on an orangutan.
Such a sweet little story.
