Bonnie the first whistling orangutan is charming keepers and friends
at the National Zoo Washington DC. USA.
She does not whistle in harmony , but can sound a few notes. This is historic. Bonnie is the first of her kind to whistle. She is self taught. Her present keepers deny any ability to whistle, but they think she may be mimicking someone from her past.
Maybe she too is happy about the president Obama’s dedication to improving scientific research. Go Bonnie!
