Snap-happy orangutan clicks with Facebook

Pic29 Snap happy orangutan clicks with Facebook

A 33-year-old furry photographer is winning fans on Facebook for pictures of her daily life as an orangutan in a Vienna zoo.

Orangutan Nonja’s photos, taken with a camera that dispenses raisins as she snaps, have won over 2000 fans on Facebook since the zoo launched an online photo album on Tuesday.

Although the slightly blurry images of Nonja’s climbing rope, food and companion’s shaggy red-brown fur have won lots of admiring comments from fans, the photographer herself is not so interested.

“Of course the apes don’t care about the pictures, they are just an accidental side product,” zoo spokesman Gerhard Kasbauer said. “They just know that when they press the button, a raisin pops out.”

The Vienna Tiergarten set up the project to help keep Nonja and her three hairy ape friends entertained in their enclosure.

Nonja takes photographs with a Samsung ST1000 digital camera which connects directly to her Facebook album via wi-fi – when she presses the shutter button the photo is uploaded. The camera has a protective cover to protect against  chewing.

    Good points…I would note that as someone who really doesn’t write on blogs much (in fact, this may be my first post), I don’t think the term “lurker” is very becoming to a non-posting reader. It’s not your fault at all, but perhaps the blogosphere could come up with a better, non-creepy name for the 90% of us that enjoy just reading the posts.
