Going ape: Watch this orangutan care for 3 tiger cubs

When it comes to baby sitting, this orangutan has a tiger by the tail. But he's not putting up with any monkey shines (because, after all, orangutans aren't monkeys — they're apes).

A male orangutan at Myrtle Beach Safari in South Carolina watched caretakers bottle-feed the tiger cubs, and he learned to ape — er, mimic — their actions. (Proving that even though a tiger can't change his stripes, an orangutan can.)

But the orangutan's services don't stop there. He can be seen embracing the tiny tigers and wrestling with them almost every day — going ape, you might say.
