The Sumatran Orangutans are located in the Indomalaya Section of the Toronto Zoo

 

sumatran orangutan primate ape monkey toronto zooAsia’s great ape, the Orangutan, has recently been re-classified as belonging to two species:  the Pongo pygmaeus from Borneo and the Pongo abelii from Sumatra .  Under the International Union for Conservation of Nature, the Sumatran orangutan is classified as critically endangered.  The Bornean is listed as endangered.  

The main reason for the decline in Orangutan numbers is a decline in the loss of their tropical forest habitats.  There are only slightly different physical characteristics between the two classifications.  The Sumatran Orangutans eat more fruits and have demonstrated the use of tools.  

The images below are of Sumatran Orangutans, and while I was photographing them, I observed their high intelligence as I watched them search for a stick and then use the stick to get access to a food that had been placed by zookeepers in a plastic container.  The young Orangutan used the stick to stir the contents of the container, removed the stick, and then licked the food source.

The Toronto Zoo was host to two mothers, each with an infant.  Much activity centered around a blue blanket under which both youngsters hid.  One suddenly grabbed the blanket and a chase ensued around their entire enclosure with the blue blanket seeming to be a very desired acquisition.  This behaviour continued until the blanket accidentally fell into some water at the bottom of their enclosure, which somehow diminished its value for the apes.  The mothers were very caring for their young.  At a previous visit, I watched as a mother Orangutan was given a bottle of milk formula for her young.  She took the bottle from the zookeeper, tasted it first, and then proceeded to feed her baby.

Female orangutan raise their offspring alone, caring for them for about five years.  They have their first infants sometime between the age of 12 and 15.  Life expectancy for Orangutans is about 45 years.

Did you know... 

that Orangutans are omnivores which means that they eat both plants and animals?  Their favourite foods, however, are fruits.

We Are All God's
Creatures

 

 

 

 

"If all the beasts 
were gone,
 men would die from 
a great loneliness 
of spirit, 
for whatever happens 
to the beasts 
also happens to the man.  
All things are connected.  Whatever befalls 
the Earth 
befalls the sons 
of the Earth."

~ Chief Seattle 
of the Suquamish Tribe,
 letter to 
President 
Franklin Pierce ~

 

 

 

 

 

 

"Life is as dear 
to a mute creature 
as it is to man.  
Just as one wants happiness 
and fears pain, 
just as one wants 
to live 
and not die, 
so do other creatures."

~ His Holiness 
The Dalai Lama ~

 

 

 

"If you have men 
who will exclude 
any of God's creatures 
from the shelter 
of compassion and pity, 
you will have men 
who will deal likewise 
with their fellow men."

~ St. Francis of Assisi ~

 

 

 

 

"The worst sin 
towards our fellow creatures 
is not to hate them,
 but to be indifferent to them.  that's the essence 
of inhumanity."

~ George Bernard 
Shaw ~

 

 

"A bird does not sing 
because it has an answer. 
 It sings because 
it has a song."

~ Chinese Proverb ~
