Wigly is three years old and weighs 13.3 kg. Poor Wigly contracted malaria in April however he has now recovered after receiving treatment. It is difficult to tell if Wigly is sick, since he is an active, strong and sometimes grumpy orangutan He loves to play with water.
Wigly is now attending regular forest school sessions. He doesn’t like the baby sitters and will often bite them. He is very good at climbing tall trees however he is not able to build his own nest yet. Wigly loves picking and collecting leaves. He will often just hold the leaves in his mouth and not eat them.
Wigly’s closest orangutan friend is called Ben and Wigly will often escape from his group to play with Ben. They will hold hands on the way home from forest school and play together. If Ben leaves him, Wigly cries.
