Bornean Orangutan Exhibit
Adult male Bornea Orangutans spend over 90% of their time on their own.
Among Bornean Orangutans, the interval between births is generally 3-4 years, though it can be as much as 8 years.
Mother Bornean Orangutans look after their young for up to 8 years.
Bornean Orangutans are the largest tree-dwelling mammal, and the only great ape living in Asia.
The head and body of Bornean Orangutans are 4.5-5.5 ft. long, with an arm-spread of approximately 8.25 ft.
In this RainForest upper level exhibit, a troop of Bornean orangutans demonstrate their arboreal nature by climbing 39 feet above visitors into The RainForest's geodesic dome.
