.....it's just there, have you got it? Ah that feels better eh Charlie?'
Charlie is a lovely gentle giant, born at Singapore Zoo in March 1981. He's a playful orang-utan and often a peacemaker between the females Melur and Wanita. Charlie and Melur produced a son named Madju in 2005 who was transferred to the USA in 2015 as part of the international breeding programme for Bornean orang-utans.
I hadn't been to Orana Wildlife Park for a few years so it was lovely to wander round today with Daughter E.
Monday.....cool cloudy kind of day
