Indeed, the clip shows the orangutan leaning in close to the window, tilting his head to get a better view. Adorably, he is even seen gesturing at parts of Miller, pointing at her and putting his hands against the glass. Miller would tell Fox 59, “It was kind of a guessing game. He was just pointing at everything, so I was just showing him the bandages on my neck, my tattoos and the burns on my arms.”

Truly shocked by the way in which the orangutan was reacting, Costello is heard commenting on the video, “He wants you to show him. That’s crazy. He wants to see it.” At which point, Miller peels back her bandages to show the concerned animal her slowly healing burns. Again, this causes Rocky to point in what appears to be a compassionate motion.
