Baby orangutan at Audubon Zoo.

I sometimes feel like this!
Menari, an endangered Sumatran orangutan, was born June 10 in the nursery at the Audubon Zoo. She was cared for by humans at the Tulane Medical Center Animal Health Care Center at the zoo until her first-time mom gained appropriate parenting skills.

She's not always this cranky, but if she has to wear diapers, what else can she do but protest? Menari can be viewed at 1 p.m. daily in the primate exhibit.
