Columbus Zoo has shared a video of one of its orangutans weaving with fabrics.

Dumplin the orangutan uses fabric attached to a sheet of metal mesh to make her creations. At the moment she’s only making them indoors, but keepers have left a similar sheet in the outdoor enclosure so visitors at the Ohio zoo can get a glace of her work.

The interesting video was part of a take-over of the zoo’s account by Chelsea, one of the orangutan’s keepers.

Videos shared by Chelsea included the apes making noises, making bubbles and giving kisses.

What an adorable bunch.
