Chuckie, a rescued orangutan was born at the Memphis Zoo, but because he was a hybrid mix between Bornean and Sumatran orangutans, he was sold to a dealer and then a circus trainer. After working for five years, he was then sold to a California trainer compound where he lived near chimpanzees but never another orangutan. In 2006, he was rescued by the Center for Great Apes, where he has safely and happily lived for the past 10 years.

According to rescuers, Chuckie had been castrated so he never developed the large facial flanges (cheek pads), long dreads of hair, or throat pouches characteristic of all male orangutans who reach maturity.

Not only does Chuckie love his life, but his rescuers say that he is always up for a good time and this is certainly evident by this hilarious video of him splishing and splashing in a tub of water. We just love watching Chuckie so happy after all he’s been through.
