One of the most touchy incident out of Indiana shows just how understanding these animals can be.

Darci Miller who was enjoying a day out with her fiancé Jason Costello at the Indiana Zoo.

As they both were enjoying the nature they arrived near the orangutan area. Miller approached the glass when Rocky the orangutan came up to her, signaling curiosity towards her arm and shoulder area. Miller was a burn victim, she had suffered serious burns in 2015 and was in a healing process.

This was really amazing and touchy, Rocky seemed to be curious to see Miller’s burns and wanted to inspect her himself.

While Darci’s fiancé filming the interaction, Rocky points towards Miller to turn and reveal her arm and the burned areas, all while looking at her intently and considering the burns.

Miller stated about the interaction she had with Rocky was one of the best experience of her life, she added, “The orangutan was completely interested in my burn scars and recent surgery sights . . . I am a burn survivor from 2015, it has been up and down but this particular day made me feel really good about myself.”

Fortunately the entire exchange between Miller and Rocky was captured on video.

The clip went viral over internet and has been covered by news channels named, The Mirrorand MSN.  Although Rocky was unable to do much to help Miller himself, while he continuously stares at her and tries to make any kind of contact he can. Adding upon, both shared a meaningful moment together.

While summing up, this incident sets an example, of how connected we are on Earth.

Even though they are not even the same species, Rocky’s curiosity about Miller made her feel safe and comforted. The thing we learn from the incident is that we should have stand to be a little more like Rocky the orangutan.

Here’s to you, Rocky!
