Ndume"s Approach to an Orange

Ndume loves oranges so much that he first opens them up, then eats the juicy flesh, and finally devours the skin. Maximum taste, no waste. In contrast, Koko prefers to eat only the flesh; she leaves the rind for the mulching crew. (Thought you might be interested in how gorillas process fruit.)
