Welcoming a new addition to the family can be exciting for younger members, and that proved to be the case for one orangutan at Chester Zoo.

Five-year-old Tuti decided the best way to grab her aunt Emma’s attention, and thus get a chance to play with her new cousin, was to poke her with a stick.

A bold move, but was it a successful course of action?

The young Sumatran orangutan did her best with a number of sticks, but it didn’t seem to provide the results she was hoping for.

Better luck next time, Tuti!
