A new study found that orangutans in Indonesia use plants to heal themselves. Scientists saw an orangutan chew leaves, squeeze out the juice, and put it on a cut on its cheek. The leaves worked like a bandage. This shows that wild animals might know how to treat their own wounds. Researchers think orangutans may have learned this from others. Other primates like chimpanzees and gorillas also use plants for healing, suggesting this might be common. This discovery helps people understand animal behavior and the importance of protecting their habitats. It can also teach people about the history of medicine and improve human healthcare. Studying animals shows how all living things are connected and helps people see the similarities between animals and humans. This research helps people appreciate the complexity of life on Earth.
