The Swimming Orangutan

Suryia, a seven-year-old urangutan, has taken a shine to diving into a pool with bikini-clad trainer Moksha Bybee at at Myrtle Beach Safari in South Carolina

Smiles all round: Moksha and Suryia smile for the underwater camera, and Suryia even manages a wave

Woohoo! With his hair streaming back as Moksha swims through the water, Suryia certainly looks like he's having a whale of a time in the safari park pool

Swimming buddies: Moksha says Suryia only took three weeks to learn how to swim, and can now paddle up to 20ft unaided - having come up with a unique 'Borneo Crawl'

Moksha said: 'Suryia's learning curve has been incredible. His favourite thing is to dive into the water on my back. 'When I surface he pulls at me almost to say, "Again, again".'
And he's not just a dab hand at diving - Suryia is able to swim up to 20 feet unaided using his rudimentary 'Borneo crawl'.
Staff at the park believe that the plucky seven-year-old is the world's first aquatic orangutan.

Note: I'm sorry because the girl is in bikini... or swimsuit.
