Newborn orangutan cuddles its mum

Aaaah - a sight to get your weekend off to a good start.

Today is World Animal Day, and to celebrate, here's a picture of a bounding baby orangutan cuddling up to its mother.

The heartwarming snap was taken at the Wildlife Reserves Singapore to mark its breeding initiative, which has resulted in the birth of more than 400 animal babies from January to August this year.
