Orangutans wrap up in warm blankets

Cannot play media. Sorry, this media is not available in your territory.

Orangutans at a zoo in Brazil are keeping warm in the chilly weather by wrapping themselves up in blankets.

It's winter there and the temperatures are particularly low for the usually hot country.

So keepers at Rio de Janeiro zoo have given the orangutans fuzzy blankets to make beds with.

But of course a blanket makes a good toy too!

Watch the orangutans here.
