Rickina, Baby Orangutan, Will Make You Squeal With Joy (VIDEO)

Baby Rickina has led a difficult life, but she's finally all smiles.

The tiny orangutan is being cared for at the Ketapang Orangutan Rescue Center in Indonesia, which is operated by the International Animal Rescue.

According to a video from Orangutan Outreach, Rickina was confiscated from a man who claimed that the orangutan's mother had abandoned her. She had a wound on her head at the time of rescue.

In the adorable clip above, you can see Rickina one month into school and ready to meet the rest of the babies at the center. She's a little hesitant at first, but eventually the other orangutans convince her to socialize. It makes for one very sweet playdate.

If you can't get enough of Rickina and her mates, check out these pictures of them from World Orangutan Day, and learn what you can do to help this endangered animal.
