NEW ORANG AT THE ZOO. Although the plans for the new Anthropoid Apee House, to stand on the open space near the west end of the Ostrich House in the garden of the Zoological Society of London, have been prepared, for some- little time past there has been but one representative of this group in the collection-a fine young chim- panzee. The other afternoon a welcome addition was made to the stock by the arrival of a young orang, which was at once placed in a large cage by the side of that occupied by the chimpanzee. It is an ex- cellent specimen, in good condition, and very lively and vigorous. It had been brought home as a pet on board of one of her Majesty's gunboats, where it was a general favourite; and an animal that reachee this country under such circumstances is always more likely to do well in confinement than one boxed up within narrow limits, and brought home spe- cially for sale to dealers. In a very short time it made friends with the keeper, Mansbridge, and recog.. nised that the act of coming, when called, was re- warded by him with a piece of apple or banana. But this rewarding the orang led to a very amusing out- burst of jealousy on the part of the chimpanzee, which was deeply offended at the notice taken of the newcomer. It sprang up and shook the wire net- ting that covers the front of the cage with all it* might, screaming loudly and "saying things that needed no interpreter to explain their meaning.
