Am round at a friends', and she showed us a video she was emailed of an orangutan drinking its own piss. We mused on whether this was evidence of a distressed, captive animal, or was a sort of thing they did.

The internet has told us nothing, with lots of links to such videos and lots of people going OMG WTF LOL!!!!!!!!!!!

So, why do they do it?

The orangutans, not the people going OMG, that is.

The Orang have always drunk our own piss. It's marketed as Caffrey's and Smithwick's.

I'm having trouble picturing how this happens without the orangutang having a glass or a cup or something. Does it lick the urine off the ground, or what?

If this is like the chimp clip, it lies on its back and excites itself until the angle is just right, then pees.

More proof that humans aren't a 'higher' species.

Rabbits eat their own shit, because they need to, in order to get all the nutrients they need from it.

Hayley Mills used to swear on this, think about that the next time you watch Whistle Down the Wind.

Isn't the difference that rabbits eat rabbit shit rather than specifically their own shit?

Which is a bit less appealing, thinking about it.

What sort of lull is there in the conversation that you say "By the way, have you seen this?..."

Have you people never heard of Uno?

If rabbits eat their own shit, why is there always so much rabbit shit about? Aren't they hungry?
