Jorong stays cool

When the sun is shining and the heat is rising, orang utan, Jorong, knows how to keep himself cool.


The 13 year-old male loves nothing better than covering himself in the refreshing water from the moat surrounding his outdoor enclosure.

Curator, Matt Lewis, said: “Jorong loves splashing about in the water and the new play frame we have built for our orang family has extended platforms over the water, so he can reach even more of it now!”

Just like dad . . .


It seems one-year-old Sprout is following her dad’s example, too – but her arms aren’t quite long enough to reach the water!
