← Orangutan attempts to hunt fish with spear

Response to VeryLee and Mitchell:
In an episode I mentioned above from the tv show "Orangutan Island" on Animal Planet there was a scene of an Orangutan sort of corralling a fish near the river bank and actually catching it with his hands. The scene continued with the primate holding the fish along its spine and then chomping down into the fish's soft underbelly. While I watched this, I too thought Orangutans subsisted mostly on fruits and vegetables (which the show portrays). But there this Orangutan was, enjoying a little sushi. If you can see the show, I highly recommend it. The new season starts in September.
