Leanne Fuller and her wife Kerri experienced his sweet nature when they visited him recently.



Speaking to the MailOnline, Ms Fuller said that after a zookeeper experience a fews years back, in which Kerri had fed Rajang Ribena, she wanted to visit him again.

"We had gone to Colchester Zoo with the specific intention of seeing Rajang as he has always been Kerri's favourite and has seen him regularly for years, " she explained.

He came over to see her straight away, and, Ms Fuller added: "After a while he leaned forward for a better look and very solemnly and gently gave it a little kiss. Our favourite bit is the look he gave her afterward, just so sweet and gentle for such a huge guy!"

According to Elite Daily, back in July 2015 when Rajang first showed an interest in another woman's baby bump, a spokesman from Colceshter Zoo wrote on its Facebook page: "Rajang has always been a curious orangutan!

"He loves belly buttons, scars and of course baby bumps!

"His inquisitive way means he loves to interact with visitors particularly those who might be expecting!"
