Carlos is now 12 years of age and continues to grow. He has gained weight and his hair is longer and thicker. It also won’t be long before he starts developing cheek pads.
Carlos is very strong and has broken numerous enrichment items and feeders. Luckily the enrichment team have been able to fix them so all the orangutans can use them again.
Carlos has become more relaxed and less aggressive towards the technicians when they are feeding the orangutans. Carlos never misses a nap after a day of activity and a full stomach.
During thunderous rain, Carlos will sit in the corner of the complex or sometimes tuck himself inside the swing, fully covered with hessian sacks.
