Rahayu is a very beautiful, friendly and sweet natured orangutan. If she thinks she is missing out on any food or enrichment being given out she will get very vocal and scream very loudly to ensure that she is not forgotten, even resorting to temper tantrums. Rahayu gets her fair share of food though and tips the scales at 13.7 kg.
Due to cerebral malaria, Rahayu’s eyesight is not as good as the other orangutans in forest school. She is a little cross-eyed but she still manages to climb and play in the trees, although her road to rehabilitation will be a long and slow one. Rahayu likes to be close to the keepers. She spends a lot of time on her own however she also enjoys playing with her friend Cemong
