The Milwaukee County Zoo were one of the first zoos to give their orangutans access to the iPad to play with and manipulate. Now, the Jungle Island Zoo in Miami, Florida is using the iPad not just as a toy for the orangutans, but as a communication tool.

Orangutans are famous for being very intelligent, they just lack verbal skills and a voice box. With the iPad, they can finally show us that they are thinking, feeling creatures. Already, the great apes are able to choose their own lunches with a special application.
