Fine line for orangutan.
A FEARLESS orangutan has been caught on camera as she walked a tightrope around 20ft above the ground in Devon.
Mali, 20, and her toddler Tatau had been climbing around in a cargo net on one of their islands at Paignton Zoo Environmental Park.
The watchful mother effortlessly walked a tightrope to a spot where she could keep an eye on Tatau as her two-year-old explored alone.
Phil Knowling, spokesman for the zoo, said: "She seemed to balance quite effortlessly, using her long arms like an acrobat uses a pole. It was a quite amazing bit of skill."
