When you’re pregnant, it’s not uncommon for complete strangers to try to touch your belly. A lady on line at the grocery store, a child at the library, a senior citizen on Bingo night— all find the impulse to touch your baby bump impossible to resist.

So, I guess it stands to reason that the most human-like animal at the zoo would have the exact same impulse.

Watch this affectionate orangutan kiss a woman’s pregnant belly through the glass at the zoo. If only you could put plate glass in front of every rando who reaches for your stomach.
