After months of being unable to move or sit up, Budi the baby orangutan has taken his first steps.
He was found lying helplessly on his back in a chicken cage in Borneo but thanks to the help of Sussex-based International Animal Rescue, he's on his feet and starting to walk for the first time.
Budi, who was kept in a chicken cage and fed entirely on condensed milk, was in a critical condition when he was rescued by IAR’s team in West Borneo in December.
When he arrived at IAR’s Orangutan Rescue and Rehabilitation Centre malnutrition had left his body bloated and his limbs swollen and bent.
At just over a year old Budi should have been strong enough to climb and swing, instead he was as helpless as a new-born baby.
