Fags: Kirno, 14-year-old male orangutan puffs on cigarettes at Jurug Zoo on March 16, 2014 in Solo, Central Java, Indonesia

14-year-old Kirno is actually an orangutan but i called him a monkey cos he looks like one. He was photographed puffing on a fag at the Taru Jurug Zoo in Solo, Central Java, Indonesia.  He learnt how to smoke by imitating zoo visitors. Guests are throwing pre-lit cigarette butts to the adult male known as Kirno then laughing as he smokes like a human.

I googled Orangutans and found this below:

Orangutans are among the most intelligent primates; they use a variety of sophisticated tools and construct elaborate sleeping nests each night from branches and foliage.

But they are also the most solitary of the great apes, with social bonds occurring primarily between mothers and their dependent offspring, who stay together for the first two years.

Native to Indonesia and Malaysia, orangutans are currently found in the rainforests of Borneo and Sumatra. 
They are the two exclusively Asian species of extant great apes.

Orangutans spend most of their time in trees. Their hair is typically reddish-brown, instead of the brown or black hair typical of chimpanzees and gorillas. 

And males and females differ in size and appearance - dominant adult males have distinctive cheek pads and produce long calls that attract females and intimidate rivals. 

Younger males do not have these characteristics and resemble adult females. 

Fruit is the most important component of an orangutan's diet; however, the apes will also eat vegetation, bark, honey, insects and even bird eggs. 

They can live over 30 years in both the wild and captivity.
