  Orangutang print. Not sure what it is.

Orangutang print. Not sure what it is.
Image credit: © sweepea

Uploader comment: I am trying to figure out what happened in this picture. It was taken with a digital camera.The zookeeper had said this orangutang was in dismay because of a recent separation of her and her child. She began cradling her arms as if she was rocking a baby,i thought it was cute. I snapped it and went home to upload it. I immediately thought it was my fingerprint, however, looking closer, my finger doesnt have an oval shape in the middle. Definitely NOT a fingerprint.Also a ball of light??Anyone take a guess?

Yeah, possibility huh. He just sat on my camera and then went back to his log. Yeah, right.

Thats a chimpanzee, not an orangutan.

Yep, that's a chimp. That could be any kind of smudge or mark on the glass of the enclosure that isn't readily detected by the human eye but is enhanced by the flash of the camera and then pick up by the film. Or in this case, the memory chip.

whatever, chimp, orangutan, monkey. All on the same boat. Anyway, there was nothing in front of the thing, no glass, i wasnt far from the animal. That was a good thought though.

I wonder, was it taken from behind a plastic or glass wall?

No, there was nothing in front of me when I took this picture.

What zoo do you go to where you can get so close to a monkey like that? They throw s#@t at everyone. There had to be some kind of enclosure. It's a reflection of the glass, nothing more.

I'm Pretty sure that when Sweepea said there was nothin there, there was nothin there.... But that said, it could be a finger print on the lens of the digi-cam.

Yes, it was an open tour. Something similar to an open petting zoo. But, anyhow, I thought it was a print of my finger too, however, it doesnt look like my finger...but still a possibility.
