This is Bob, a 10 year old orangutan from Borneo. Bob has a playful calm personality that os delightful to observe as he shows off to the new 14 year old female, Kitra, in their indoor environment. These two have been pair up because their genes are of the same species. Both are in the prime of their life as orangutans live in their 50s as demonstrated by Inji, a 55 year old female Sumatran orangutan at the Oregon Zoo.
