Orang-u-tooth!

Colchester Zoo resident gets a spot of dental work done.

Peter Kertesz specialises in treating animals in zoos all over the world and also looks after human patients in London.

He's just removed three teeth from Rajang the Orangutan after they decayed.

Despite being very sleepy afterwards, zoo managers say the 41-year old has made a full recovery from the operation which happened at the weekend.
