We’ve drawn the basic conclusion that people love oranges and orange juice, but so do animals! We compiled a bunch of animal friendly pictures to entertain you today that feature our favorite citrus: the orange!
What animals actually eat oranges though?
As it turns out birds and all species of Ape and Monkey are the main non human consumers of oranges, but many small animals such as squirrels, rabbits, and even insects.
Why do animals eat oranges?
Aside from the appealing taste, the answer is very similar to why humans do. Oranges are rich in carbohydrates, Vitamin C, many other minerals, which makes them an incredible source of energy for animals as well.
Animals and Their Oranges
This rare moment captures a bluejay landing on an orange.
This adorable Mother chimp holds her baby while feeding it and herself an orange, gathering their daily nutrients and Vitamin C intake.
This magnificent creation comes from oranges, and somehow is turned into an incredible life sized elephant and back round looking more like a painting than an orange and citrus sculpture.
As simple as any day is, this regular wandering cow approaches this orange and takes a big old lick of it!
Oranges are great for our health, but this adorable dog below has learned how great they can be for balance as it is balancing not one, but two oranges on it’s forehead and nose. I doubt many humans could do that!
