Two adorable baby Sumatran orangutans quickly made new friends after being rescued by border officials who foiled a bid to smuggle them into Thailand at a wildlife centre on Wednesday.

The video portrays them as far from shy as as they were let out of their cage at Khao Prathap Chang Wildlife Sanctuary and began to rub noses with another pair of baby orangutans already there. They received a bath before exploring their new surroundings, holding onto each other in the cutest way the whole time.

One cheeky orangutan tried to grab the camera a few times while another climbed up a woman's leg and embraced her in a loving way.
