Image of Asia: Enjoying ice birthday cake and a stretch

In this photo by Joshua Paul, 11-year-old Sumatran orangutan Tsunami hangs on a rope while eating her ice birthday cake at Malaysia's National Zoo in Kuala Lumpur, where she also sampled a fruit platter. The species native to Sumatra island is endangered, particularly due to the loss of trees, its main habitat. Zoology experts believe Indonesian wildfires, intentionally set to clear land for development, have killed many wild orangutans.
