Magician pays tribute to orang-utan Rajang at Colchester Zoo

Matt G Mentalist had once performed an amazing card trick with Rajang at the zoo in 2016 (video below). After Rajang had to be put to sleep at the age of 50 last week due to ill health, the magician paid his respects to the popular orang-utan. Rajang has been a star on social media and was in the headlines for his fascination at a pregnant woman’s baby bump and also the magic trick. Matt said it was “such sad news,” adding that Rajang had given him a moment in magic he would never forget.
