Young Orangutan Escapes from his Mother
A juvenile orangutan at the Jersey Zoo https://www.durrell.org/wildlife/visit/ was caught trying to establish his independence from his mother. She was not having any of it. The scene played out like a sitcom, and got an appropriate soundtrack. The dialogue is not difficult to imagine.
Mom: Come along, Junior, let's go.
Kid: Aw, Mom! I wanna play some more!
Mom: But it's time for lunch.
Kid: But I have having fun!
Mom: Don't you want some nice greens so you'll grow big and strong?
Kid: Haha, you can't catch me!
Mom: why you little… come back here!
Mom: I swear, you are just like your father!
