Stroppy baby orangutan is dragged around his safari park home by his nonplussed mother 

An adorable baby orangutan was less than impressed when his mother had to pull him away from playtime at Pairi Daiza zoo in Belgium.

Three-year-old Berani was dragged along the floor by doting mum Sari as he threw a tiny tantrum, but the pair quickly made up with the youngster planting a kiss on his parent.

Other snaps of the playful orangutan show him snuggling under a yellow blanket and enjoying a refreshing sip of water after working up a thirst from making mischief. 

Photographer, Koen Hartkamp, captured the delightful moment during a visit to the park, which works to raise awareness of palm oil exploitation and participates in projects to restore the Borneo forest for orangutans. 

Koen, 34, said: 'Just like all small children, Berani still has to listen to what mum says even though he's getting a bit more independent ... and judging by the picture he didn't like it.' 

The orangutan family, which also includes father Ujian, arrived at the award-winning zoo in 2017 after moving from Germany.

I don't want to go! Three-year-old orangutan Berani looked less than impressed as he was dragged along the grass by his nonplussed mother Sari after she interrupted his playtime at Pairi Daiza zoo in Belgium

What a cutie! The cheeky youngster was soon back to his happy self and looked very content as he snuggled under a fluffy yellow blanket during a break from his mischievous antics 

Pucker up! Although throwing a mini tantrum earlier in the day, Berani gave his mother a big kiss to make friends again
